A fake message being circulated on social media that GST rates differ on the basis of bill value, if people split their shopping bills at supermarket chain D-Mart, they can avoid GST. The message says that no GST will be levied on bills below ₹1,000, while the tax will increase as the amount increases.

However, D-Mart issued a clarification saying GST rates are applied on each product and rates for each product is based on definition as per rules defined by the tax authorities of the government of India. GST rates are not based on bill value.
