GST law has chalked out GST exemptions when a charitable trust rents out religious meant for general public (owned and managed by a registered charitable trust under 12AA of the Income Tax Act, 1961). GST will be exempted when:

  • Rent out rooms are charged lesser than Rs.1,000 a day
  • Kalyanamandapam or an open area is charged lesser than Rs.10,000 a day
  • Rent out shops and other spaces for business are charged less than Rs.10,000 a month

So In your case, one-day room rent is 800 that is exempted from GST.
