Ramakrishnan: As a consumer I have a doubt. As per present GST rules whether rate of GST would be calculated on the manufacturing cost or on MRP rates which would be mentioned in each finished product/s. If chargeable on MRP rates, then the end-users will be put to more burden according to my view. Will I be able to clarify on this point in due course?
