Govt allows revised MRP declaration for pre-packaged goods
On account of implementation of GST, there might be instances where the retail sale price printed on a pre-packaged commodity is required to be revised
The government has allowed manufacturers/ packers/importers of pre-packaged commodities to declare the revised retail sale price (MRP), after implementation of GST by way of stamping or putting sticker or online printing, a Ministry of Consumer Affairs order said.
On account of implementation of GST, there may be instances where the retail sale price printed on a pre-packaged commodity is required to be revised, it said.
It will be applicable on unsold stock manufactured/packed/imported, if any, in addition to the existing retail sale price (MRP) up to March 31, 2018.
"Use of un-exhausted packaging material/wrapper has also been similarly allowed up to March 31, 2018, after making necessary corrections," the statement said.
The said information has been disseminated to all the stakeholders and Controllers of Legal Metrology of all States/UTs for immediate action.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution Shri C.R. Chaudhary today in Rajya Sabha.
