Protecting Consumers Post GST Implementation

On account off implementation of GST there may be instances where the retail sale price printed on a pre-packaged commodity is required to be revised. To protect the interests of consumers the Department has issued an order according to which, manufacturers/ packers/importers of pre-packaged commodities are allowed to declare the revised retail sale price (MRP), after implementation of GST by way of stamping or putting sticker or online printing, as the case may be, on the unsold stock manufactured/packed/imported, if any, in addition to the existing retail sale price (MRP), upto 31st March, 2018. Use of un-exhausted packaging material/wrapper has also been similarly allowed upto 31st March, 2018 after making necessary corrections.

The said information has been disseminated to all the stakeholders and Controllers of Legal Metrology of all States/UTs for immediate action.
