GST anti-profiteering authority gets Cabinet approval

New Delhi: A day after notifying substantial reduction in goods and services tax (GST) rates for over 200 items, the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday approved the establishment of the much-anticipated National Anti-profiteering Authority (NAA) to ensure that benefits of such tariff cuts are passed on to consumers.

The “anti-profiteering” measures will provide an institutional mechanism to ensure that the full benefits of input tax credits and GST rate cuts flow to the consumers. This institutional framework comprises the National Anti-profiteering Authority, a Standing Committee, Screening Committees in every state and the Directorate General of Safeguards in the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).

The National Anti-profiteering Authority will be headed by a senior officer of the level of secretary to the central government with four technical members from the centre and states. A selection panel led by cabinet secretary P.K. Sinha has already started consultation with states to finalize the members of the panel.

The authority will have a sunset date of two years from the date on which the chairman assumes charge. The chairman and the four members of the authority have to be less than 62 years.

Energy drinks may affect mental health, up blood pressure

New York: Are you in the habit of taking energy drinks that are commonly known to provide instant mental and physical stimulation. Beware, their short-term benefits can be outweighed by increased risk of serious issues affecting mental health, blood pressure and obesity, a new study reveals.

The energy drinks high on sugar and caffeine levels are often marketed as a healthy beverage that people can adopt to improve their energy, stamina, athletic performance and concentration.

The findings showed that energy drinks are associated with health risks ranging from risk-seeking behaviour, such as substance misuse and aggression, mental health problems in the form of anxiety and stress, to increased blood pressure, obesity, kidney damage, fatigue, stomach aches and irritation.

“We summarise the consequences of energy drink consumption, which include heart, kidney, and dental problems, as well as risk-seeking behaviour and poor mental health,” said Josiemer Mattei, Assistant Professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The study published in Frontiers in Public Health, also highlighted the worrying trend of mixing energy drinks with alcohol. Individuals who do this consume more alcohol than if they were drinking alcohol alone.
