McDonald’s Franchisee in India asked to reduce prices & pass on benefit of GST reduction to customers !!!

*****************
McDonald’s Franchisee Made Illegal Profit Of ₹ 7.49 Crores By Denying Benefit Of GST Reduction To Customers : Anti Profiteering Authority [Read Order] | Live Law
By: Manu Sebastian
**************

The National Anti Profiteering Authority has found that Hardcastle Restaurants, a franchisee of McDonalds, did not pass on the benefit of Input Tax Credit(ITC) and reduction of GST rates to customers, and has amassed illegal profit to the tune of Rs.7.49 crores between November 15,2017 to January 31,2018

*The Authority has directed the franchisee to reduce prices in commensurate with GST reduction and ITC benefit as per Section 171 of the Goods and Services Tax Act. The franchisee has been further directed to deposit the illegally amassed profit of Rs.7.49 crores as per Rule 133(3)(c) of CGST Rules 2017 in 50:50 proportion with the Centre and 10 states in Western and Southern India where the franchisee was running its outlets, within a period of three months with 18% interest.*

Section 171 of the GST Act contains the “anti-profiteering clause” which states that any reduction in GST rates or the benefit of input tax credit should be passed on to the recipient by way of “commensurate reduction in prices”.

The GST rate on restaurant services was reduced from 18% to 5% with effect from November 14, 2017. The Director General of Anti-Profiteering found on investigations that the franchisee had not made commensurate reduction in prices to reflect GST reduction. Rather, it increased the base prices of products from November 15 to offset GST reduction, so as to make the prices same as before. Also, the franchisee had availed ITC benefit of Rs.9.33 crores till November 2017, which was also not passed on to the customers. Based on the report of the Director General, the Authority initiated proceedings.

Ruling in Domestic Violence Case

The Times of India (Mumbai edition)

21 Nov 2018

Mumbai: In perhaps a first-ofits-kind order, a sessions court ruled that the legal heirs of domestic violence victims can recover maintenance arrears if the complainant dies during pendency of the case. On Friday, the court upheld a magistrate court order directing a 32-year-old Chembur resident to pay Rs 1.35 lakh in maintenance arrears to his mother-in-law. The amount was due to his estranged wife, Laxmi Waghmare, who died in October 2017.

The husband, Vikrant, had claimed there was no provision Domestic Violence (DV) Act for legal heirs of a victim to be made party to cases. However, the sessions court said that the liability to pay maintenance under DV Act is not strictly a criminal liability, though proceedings are stated as ‘criminal proceedings’. “But still, liability to pay arrears of maintenance, being statutory liability, will have to be treated as civil liability of the appellant (Vikrant) and therefore, the mother and the legal heir of the deceased will be en- titled for recovery of arrears of maintenance,” the court said.

Laxmi filed a complaint in 2015 alleging harassment by her husband and in-laws. She said she had married Vikrant on May 30, 2013. She sought interim maintenance, which was granted by the magistrate court. The amount due from 2015 until the time the order was passed in 2017 was Rs 1.35 lakh. After Laxmi died, her mother, Padma Lokhande, moved the magistrate court and requested it to pass an order for recovery of the interim maintenance amount. On May 15 this year, the magistrate court passed an order asking Vikrant to pay the amount to Padma.

Vikrant then moved the sessions court and contended that his mother in law was never party to the proceedings before the magistrate court and hence, had no right to claim the amount. He stated that there is no provision under the DV Act or Criminal Manual for substitution of relative of a party before the court

Nanda, who worked with the actor on hit ’90s show Tara, had accused Nath of raping her 19 years ago in a lengthy Facebook post on 8 October. Nanda spoke up about her mental trauma which forced her to drink irresponsibly and dabble in drugs up until 2008, and how she finally found her voice back as a writer with social media.

She had alleged that Nath sexually assaulted her on more than one occasion after he was fired from the 1993 show for misbehaving with its lead actor Navneet Nishan. Nishan supported Nanda’s allegations against Nath while confirming the harassment she had also faced at the hands of the actor. Stating that she supports every woman or man who is standing up for themselves in the #MeToo movement, she said, "I dealt with the four-year harassment by slapping the man in question, and it is done and dusted. l suffered the loss of the show and was further shamed by the man through media and I endured that."
