Raise Voice again GST Fraud. Govt. probe against big names for anti-profiteering

Indian government sending Notices related to Anti-profiteering to the names such as McDonald's, Lifestyle, Honda on GST rates.
This is a good move. I think:
1. Government have to be very Aggressive, Honest and Transparent in taking such actions against the companies who don't comply. They should be sent notices, fined and allow them to correct with penalty. Few raids/notices will help the system to straight up.
2. We citizen should raise the Red Flag towards any such activities. There are portals and helplines setup but we don't care (which of course includes me) and have time to raise any query. Yes the portal needs to be easy and user-friendly but we will only know all this once we try to raise any query. So I feel we should be an aware citizen and Speak Up if we don't like or have problems. Criticizing the government (and I mean any govt. be it BJP or Congress or AAP etc.) by sitting home will not help. It's time for a change and take things in our hand - In a Positive and Constructive way.
