While the products and service tax (GST) came to be carried out from July 1st final yr, the authorities had allowed marketers to show along the antique MRP, information of the revised MRP on pre-GST stocks by means of the manner of stamping, setting the sticky label, or online printing.
Stores will show only one MRP after thirty-first March. We aren’t in favor of offering an extension of closing date for MRP stickering.
The procedure of sticking revised MRP on packaged merchandise had to be undertaken by manufacturers, packers and importers handiest, the department had notified. The department of consumer affairs was receiving requests from the industry to extend the closing date so it turned into less difficult to liquidate pre-GST shares. The cut-off date turned into prolonged from September 30th to December thirty first final year, and eventually to thirty-first March this year.
The Minister stated that the enterprise has obtained sufficient time to conform with post-GST modifications.
