GST in MRP: Govt Likely to Make it Mandatory for Restaurants, Malls to Ensure Price Includes Taxes

New Delhi, October 31: A fresh order is likely to be rolled out by the government in the next month to make it mandatory for restaurants, malls and other shopping outlets to include goods and service tax (GST) in the maximum retail price (MRP). As per a report by Business Today, the recommendation has been made by the group of state finance ministers headed by the Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma. The GST Council will now meet on November 10 and the issue will then be taken up by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

As per reports, there have been several complaints by consumers that some retailers have been charging GST over and above the MRP of products. Customers are of the opinion that the government should make it very clear that MRP is the maximum price of a product to be sold in retail and charging anything above this is an offence. Reports state that after the GST roll out on July 1, many issues have surfaced that have impacted several businesses.

The government also eased the GST deadlines on Monday. The date for filing of July GSTR-2 has been extended by a month to November 30 and GSTR-3 to December 11. The original due date for filing GSTR-2 was October 31, while the last date for filing of GSTR-3, which is a matching form of GSTR-1 and 2, was November 11. The last date for filing of GSTR-1 for July was October 1.Over 46.54 lakh businesses had filed July GSTR-1 returns.

HC dismisses Kejriwal plea to summon DDCA documents

New Delhi, Oct 31 (PTI) The Delhi High Court today dismissed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea to summon the minutes of meetings of the cricket body DDCA between 1999 and 2014 in a defamation suit filed by Union Minister Arun Jaitley.

Joint Registrar Pankaj Gupta declined to grant the relief sought by Kejriwal who along with five other Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders are facing a Rs 10 crore defamation suit filed by the BJP leader.

Besides Kejriwal, the five others are Raghav Chadha, Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Deepak Bajpai. The AAP leaders had accused the BJP leader of corruption while he was the President of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) from 2000 to 2013.

During the hearing earlier, Jaitley had opposed Kejriwal’s application saying the AAP leader has been trying to delay the proceedings by filing “frivolous” pleas, including the current one.

The BJP leader had filed the defamation suit against the AAP leaders for allegedly levelling “defamatory” charges against him in connection with alleged irregularities in DDCA while he was its President.

The chief minister had sought summoning of the minutes of the meetings held by the General Body, the Executive Committee or the Board of Directors of the DDCA between 1999 and 2014.

Kejriwal is facing a separate Rs 10 crore defamation suit by Jaitley after the AAP leader’s former lawyer, senior advocate Ram Jethmalani used “scandalous words” while cross- examining the BJP leader.

Kejriwal had later told the court that he had not instructed Jethmalani to use such words against the minister.

Jaitley had denied all the allegations by the AAP leaders in December 2015 and filed a civil defamation suit seeking Rs 10 crore damages from them Kejriwal, claiming they had made “false and defamatory” statements in a case involving DDCA, thereby harming his reputation.
