J&J GST profiteering complaint 230 crores

NAA directs J&J to reduce prices of its products and asked the company to deposit Rs230 crore in consumer welfare funds of the central and state governments
J&J is liable for imposition of penalty under section 171(3A) of the CGST Act.

Our circle complaint leading to action against the company.

NAA must share some incentives with the complainants by starting a structured program. I am sure many more will submit.

Also the Govt doesnt know how to spend consumer welfare funds. This should be used against tax shortfall and to fund awareness programs. more

All problem wrt to GST is not due to rates but due to very bad software. The late finance minister made a big mistake of implementing GST without doing extensive testing of the software and also not understanding the problem of the participants. Hence you have serious problems of fraud and leakage of revenue more  
I am all appreciation for the excellent work done by the Local Circles in rectifying many, many faults in the system. Congratulations. This is largely due to the effort of a few individuals who are not only alert but also aware of the details of various procedures and are able to highlight in an appropriate manner for effective action to be taken.
Can Ms Sharma elaborate on what she means by "NAA must share some incentives with the complainants by starting a structured program"? Structured program is good but what does she mean by incentives? more  
A part of the fund should be used for improving theworkingof Consumer Forums/courts. more  
Should be used for awareness and caught other thief/absconders . more  
Garima Sharma ji, I support your suggestions strongly. Besides, I would like to add for your information and for others in LC that CWF under CPA 1986 & 2019 is personal of consumers defined in the Act. This is the money recovered by the Authorities, presently as EXCISE & CUSTOMS duties only which the business community collected but not refunded to unidentifiable consumers. And, it is the right of consumers represented in the Consumer Protection Councils under CPA to utililse the same in the manner they (the said consumers) deem fit. It is, theoretically , not the business of the GoI and the bureaucracy to manipulate the CWF they find it appropriate - political appeasement of the favourites. Similarly, there are other personal monies of consumers which are lying unclaimed and unrefunded with various public sector bodies like Banks, IRDA, IPFO, Post Office/Banks and others which are not at all being passed on to CWF with due amendments of the Act. The GoI-DoCA says it is not being heard by other ministries. For example, the money recovered as overcharged taxes on sales/VAT/GST and also the one recovered as more than the MRP charged by the pharmaceutical industry is passed on to the Consolidated Fund of India where only the revenue earned by the Government is deposited. Gross negligence and irrational manipulation of personal consumers' money is being diverted and misused by the Govt of India. CONSUMERS OF INDIA ARE REQUESTED TO UNITE AND WRITE A PETITIONS TO THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA FOR TAKING UP THE MATTER IN LINE WITH THE MAFATLAL INDUSTRIES & oTHERS VERSUS THE UNION OF INDIA & OTHERS. Your views and comments in this forum will carry weight. more
