It has come to the notice that some of the restaurants, hotels and eateries operating within the Union Territory of Chandigarh are charging 18% instead of 5% GST on the amount of the food items/food bills. Charging more than the maximum retail price (MRP) attracts the provisions of Legal Metrology Act. To report any unethical practices such as collecting tax on products/services that are GST-free, charging GST over and above the defined rate, over-charging over the MRP, please lodge a complaint with the Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, Plot No.5-B, Sector 19-B, Madhya Marg, U.T., Chandigarh and also file a complaint on the official website of Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (www.cbic-gst.gov.in) or call on toll-free number 1800-1200-232 and can also call on the National Consumer Helpline Toll Free Number 1800-114000/14404.
