If a businessman or an institution makes a profit from GST by using wrong methods, you can file a complaint with the National Antiprofitification Authority (NAA).
The National Anti-Profiteering Authority (NAA) was formed for just two years only. After the launch of GST, it was implemented in July 2017. The purpose behind its formation was that no reduction or increase in the prices of products and services could lead to any damage to the customers due to the implementation of GST. Two years of this institution are going to be completed in July, but there is a possibility that the term of the institution can be extended for two years.
In order to ensure that the trader could not take advantage of the GST rules, the government has constituted this institution under the GST Act.
The responsibility of NAA is to protect the interests of the customers. The most important thing of this organization is to see that the GST Council is cutting the GST rates of goods and services, the benefit of which is to reach the customers. If the trader is reducing the prices of products and services after cutting the GST rate, the organization monitors it. If a trader does not cut the price of goods even after cutting GST rates, then the responsibility of the institution is to make the appropriate action on the trader.
Customers can register complaints against traders/sellers on the new helpline number 011-21400643.
