It has transpired that many integrated Tier-1 retailers are indulged in making cash transactions, which is not only against the overall scheme of things, but also the intended objectives.

In this connection, it is pertinent to note that Rule 150ZEB(II) of the Sales Tax Rules, 2006, mandates that each Tier-1 Retailer “must have the facility of debit and credit card machines installed at each notified outlet and the sales through debit or credit cards shall not be ordinarily refused.”
