- As per section 171 of the CGST/SGST Act, any reduction in rate of tax on any supply of goods or services or the benefit of input tax credit shall be passed on to the recipient by way of commensurate reduction in prices.
- In pursuance of the powers conferred by this section, the government has constituted the National AntiProfiteering Authority (NAPA). NAPA is required to examine whether input tax credits availed by any registered person or the reduction in the tax rate have actually resulted in a commensurate reduction in the price of the goods or services or both supplied by him.
- NAPA has power to investigate cases against the registered person who has not passed on the benefits by way of commensurate reduction in prices and order reduction in prices, cancel registration, impose penalty and/or return to the recipient, an amount equivalent to the amount not passed on by way of commensurate reduction in prices along with interest.
