When i buy 10 pens paying the full MRP Price (Total MRP is Rs.1000) from a URD. Also assume, i am liable to pay RCM (say @ 18% = Rs.180).

My Query is although i get ITC for Rs.180 i pay, doesn't the cost of the pens come to Rs.1180 (incl Tax) ?. The total MRP is Rs.1000/- . Doesn't this contradict the law by Govt that prices including GST should not be above MRP ?.

Any thoughts on this, please share

Law prohibits you from selling goods above MRP.

So you cannot sale above MRP unless there is some exception (example, water bottles in hotels).

Tax paid under RCM will never be cost as you will get full input tax credit. How you calculated 180 as cost? You will get input of Rs. 180 regardless of at what price you buy pen.

Though trading at MRP to MRP will not bring any profit but there will be no tax loss.

You will sell at MRP including tax. Here your loss will be actual cost of 1000 Rs. minus at what price you sell without tax.

You can utilise input against other sales.
