Is it a legal requirement for a shop owner in India to give me a receipt if I purchased something in their shop?

I'm asking as I purchased a SIM card in a shop of one of the main phone operators in India and they wouldn't give me a receipt for it, which surprised me.


It is a legal requirement as per various shop acts.

Quite a few small shops don't give receipts to avoid taxes

  • Thanks, I'd be curious to know which various shop acts. (also, showing the legal text to the shop owner would help to get receipts) – Franck Dernoncourt Sep 8 '18 at 3:34
