The next time you go to buy any item, there may be two MRP (price) written on it. Do not worry. There is no lack in it. One of those two will be old and one new one and one new one. This will tell you that GST will know whether you do it or cheaper and costly, along with every such stuff.
The order came from above. Minister of Food and Consumer Affairs Ram Vilas Paswan has said.
With the introduction of GST, prices of some things have come down, some have increased. We have exempted the industry from packaged commodity rules till 30th September, 2017, also write a new MRP of the items which have come down. Write the MRP of those whose prices have been raised too. If the shopkeeper has not written an updated MRP on any item, then legal action will be taken against him.
The Government will be vigilant of traders and shopkeepers. The team of 175 officers will monitor the supply and price of goods. Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said that these officers will pay attention to the districts. It has also been said that in the newspaper the details of the prices which have increased have to be reported.
