Bottled Water MRP higher inside Airport Premises
Last week we bought a 500 ml water bottle with brand name Aava at Domestic Terminal T1 of Mumbai airport which had MRP Rs.60. Bottling company Sheelpe Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. Ahmedabad.
Last month at Dehradun airport we bought a 500ml water bottle with trade name Vedica which had MRP Rs.30. Bottling company Bisleri International Pvt Ltd., Rudrapur.
After the amendment of Packaging Commodities Act printing of different MRP for same quantity of water is not allowed effective 1-1-2018. However it seems that either the authorities are not taking action against these defaulters or they have found some loop hole in the law for profiteering.

The govt is not interested in these small improvements..... more
Many a times the Apex Court deliver its verdict overlooking the common mans' interests. The establishments referred to in the court's verdict are already fixing exorbitant prices for their menus leaving several hundred percent of margin on their cost. As such, how the observations of the court could be justified? These apart, when the price of a bottle of same quantity water could be priced at just half of the MRP of the bottle of Aava by another renowned manufacturer of the country to be sold at the airports itself, it is clearly a case of profiteering. more
