Under-invoicing’ leading to GST evasion, claim bicycles makers

Tuesday, 24 September 2019 | PTI | Chandigarh

The “under-invoicing” of bicycles by some unscrupulous dealers in Ludhiana has hit the market of organised players and is also leading to GST evasion, cycle makers have claimed. Organised bicycles manufacturers on Monday said it has become difficult to hold onto their existing market because of the “rampant illegal practice of under-invoicing” taking place in Ludhiana — the country’s major manufacturing hub of cycles and cycle parts.

An ordinary bicycle, priced at Rs 2,500 a unit, is being invoiced at Rs 900 a bicycle by some illegal dealers, leading to the evasion of the GST, they said while citing an example. Twelve per cent GST is charged on a bicycle.

“By under-invoicing, some illegal dealers are evading GST of Rs 192 on one unit of bicycle as against payable tax of Rs 300 (GST on Rs 2,500),” said a Ludhiana-based owner of a prominent brand of bicycle who wished not to be named.
