Sir, if the sale price is less than the purchase price then there is loss. Why would someone do business at loss?

In GST taxable event is 'supply' and not 'manufacture'. As per Section 15 of CGST Act, the tax payer (assessee) / manufacturer/dealer is to pay GST on transaction value irrespective of the fact/aspect of profit or loss. No reversal is required. as damaged/defective inputs(goods) are used in the course or furtherance of business as per condition laid down in Section 16(1) of CGST Act.

Pl. note that transaction must be genuine and if such practice is repeated, it will pave the way for investigation by the department.

I agree with Shri Kasturi Sethi Ji in toto! It is also due to my presumption that subject transaction is not between related parties.

These are ex facie views of mine and the same should not be construed as professional advice / suggestion.

If it is a one off transaction and due to some reason there has been a deterioration of goods after purchase due to which the sale value is lesser than purchase price, ITC can still be taken.

However, in case of ingenuine transactions there could be disputes raised by department if these kind of situations are frequent.

I agree with Madam Shilpi Jain.
