The finance ministry is planning to simplify the form which consumers are required to fill to submit their complaints against businesses that are indulging in profiteering post Goods and Services Tax (GST) rollout.
The official in the Ministry said the move to simplify the form comes after the standing committee received numerous representations red flagging the complicated nature of the form.
The official said, simplified form is on the anvil so that even a common man can apply without the help of an accountant and no complex details would be sought.
As many as 170 complaints have been filed before the standing committee and screening committee by consumers against businesses for not passing on benefits of tax rate reduction since the implementation of GST the from 1st of July.
The profiteering complaint form, though a single page document, has about 44 columns seeking a number of details and half of these fields are mandatory.
