Expiry date in bills of food products

The MP government for a change is making a consumer friendly move and will make it mandatory for traders, malls and sellers of food products to mention manufacturing and expiry date on bills or receipts against the purchase.

Can the same thing be implemented across all of India as many of the stores are actually retail chains and have common systems across India.

And the same should be done for medicines also.

I request all to share views. more

Many a shopkeepers are keeping expired stocks in their shelves and this is most dangerous.Agencies must look in to it and punish the culprits. more  
It is a good suggestion and there should not be any difficulty in implementing the same. more  
Its question of practice to check the packing like we always check medicine packets/strips before paying. In case of only dates are in the invoice without any other identification, the retailer can say I have delivered different package than what you are complaining. more  
THIS MAY BE POSSIBLE FOR PACKAGED PRODUCTS,BUT THEY ALREADY HAVE THIS INFORMATION ON PACKAGE.FOOD PRODUCTS SOLD IN LOOSE CONDITION CAN NOT V BE ASCERTAINED FOR SUCH INFORMATION.I HAVE STILL TO COME ACROSS EXPIRY DATE FOR EGGS,WHICH ARE SOLD LOOSE. more  
I feel this is a very positive step & should be implemented across the country more

      Looks like more price capping is on the way. Keep it up but make sure MRP is there legal metrology. Your enforcement is generally not up to the mark. WhatsApp
