cgst charged in bill

Sir when we ask a shopkeeper to issue a pacca bill he used to issue in which cgst was there but if we don't ask for bill, the same amount is being charged. So Sir my query is where this amount of cgst goes in the pocket of shopkeeper or else, if we don't take bill

Dear Mr Sharma, When a customer ask for a Pucca Bill, the shopkeeper has to show that sale as part of his turnover for Goods & Services Tax (GST). Thus, he will charge CGST and SGST on it if the sale is within State. If the sale is outside State then he will charge IGST (integrated tax). But if he is not giving pucca will and is only giving a kacchi parchi ( as it is called in local language) then he cannot collect tax as the Government cannot trace that sale for GST purpose. Therefore, this illegally collected amount will go to shop keepers pocket. This is a fraud with the Government and is a punishable offence.
