The government has increased the number of consumer helplines on GST from 14 to 60, with specially trained professionals handling queries related to the new indirect tax regime.
Ram Vilas Paswan, Food and Consumer Affairs Minister, said, "The government wants that the benefits of decreased prices, after the imposition of the GST, should reach the common man. For this we have increased the number of consumer helplines to 60."
He said, "Earlier, there were 14 national consumer helplines, now professionals have been trained specifically to address the concerns of consumers related to the Goods and Service Tax (GST)."
The contact number of the national consumer helpline is 14404.
Paswan said, "The government will take legal action against vendors not declaring revised MRP after the GST."
