The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has launched a mobile app ‘GST Verify’ to protect consumers’ interest.
GST Verify is an android app developed by B Raghu Kiran, Joint Commissioner, GST, Hyderabad.
The app will help to verify if the person collecting GST from the consumer is eligible to collect it or not, an official statement said on Thursday.
The app also provides details of the person/ company collecting GST, it said, adding that a Composition Tax Payer should not collect the tax from his consumer.
”Every time you shop/eat/buy check the bill if there is any GST amount mentioned, if yes verify through this app if she/he is genuinely registered person or not, thereby you save the amount shown as tax from the fraudster if he is cheating you,” the statement said.
The app can be used all across the country, the statement added.
