Firstcry charging GST on discounted MRP - India Consumer Forum

Firstcry charging GST on discounted MRP

I have been ordering baby items fro First They are giving discounts on products (which is the MRP). After that while payment, they add extra GST (on discounted price) and the total adds upto almost the MRP.
As GST is already included in MRP, how can one just charge it again just by giving discounts. Hope action will be taken towards this case.

    Totally agree with the original complainant. When I place an order on they offer a discount on MRP and then add GST on top of the discounted MRP.

    Although they are not charging the customer more than MRP, however, showing discount on MRP (which includes GST) and then charging GST again is a clear fraud.

    They advertise their discounts to attract customers and then make them pay the gst. They say they only charge gst on products with more than 19% discount. Then why aren’t other brands doing the same? When they say the provide discount they actually do unlike firstcry.

    I too experience this double GST scam. Still you can check with their websites. It’s marketing strategies without ethics.

    They attracts people with discounts on the original price (inc. GST) and then added additional GST.
