The Thugs of Real Estate

Director General of Anti-Profiteering (DGAP) is said to be investigating over 50 real estate firms for indulging in profiteering under the Goods and Services Tax (GST). The agency found that 60 per cent of the 125 developers under its scanner did not pass on the input tax credit benefit to homebuyers. The companies are located across the country and include some of the big names in the real estate industry.

Central and state governments levied 5.5-6.5 per cent taxes on the under-construction properties before GST came into effect. After GST implementation, real estate was placed under the 12 per cent tax slab.

Following this, many builders raised prices though they could claim input tax credits against products and services after paying the taxes. Thus, though their tax liability came down considerably in the GST-era due to tax refunds, they did not lower prices of the apartments.

No wonder now many of these guys want the Govt to do away with Anti-Profiteering systems.

They need to refund everyone's extra charged money. more
