GST: Mykira GST App to help consumers check prices

PUTRAJAYA: The Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry has launched an app to help shoppers verify that prices that they pay are within the permitted range.

MyKira GST, which is currently available only for Android users, would enable consumers check on prices of more than 10,000 items and services.

“Just key in the item or service, quantity and GST-included price, the name of the shop as well as the parliamentary area and click on semak (check),” said Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek.

“If the price or charge is within the range, a green thumbs-up icon will appear. A red thumbs-down indicates that the charge is outside the range,” he said after launching the app here yesterday.

Hasan said charges that were outside the range indicated that the traders were profiteering.

“Consumers can immediately send a complaint to the ministry’s enforcement division through the e-complaint form which is available in the app.”
