The Government is taking various steps to check evasion of GST as well as educate the taxpayers about the new tax regime and encouraging voluntary compliance. The steps which are being taken include an introduction of the e-way bill, simplification of procedure for filing tax returns, capturing invoice details so that the same could be matched with credit taken and verification of transition credit availed by taxpayers.

The Anti-Profiteering mechanism under GST consists of National Anti-Profiteering Authority (NAA), Directorate General of Anti-Profiteering (DGAP), Standing Committee at the National level and State level Screening Committees.

The NAA had monitoring meetings at Chandigarh, Chennai, and Mumbai for zonal awareness. These Committees initially examine the complaints alleging profiteering and refer to the DGAP which investigates and sends its report to the NAA. NAA finally passes adjudication order thereon.

NAA website is functional since last four months. This site provides the facility of making and tracking complaints online.

This was stated by Shri Shiv Pratap Shukla, Minister of State for Finance in a Written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
