Jiomart blatantly violating Legal metrology laws

Some time back it was mandated by govt of India that ecommerce platforms and apps must disclose best before date for human consumption items

I just placed an order for some ghee in jio mart and they are not displaying any such information.

Does reliance generally get free pass from Govt or will they be booked for this?? more

Please return the expired item for a full refund .... If the received item is NOT expired, you have nothing to complain about ... If the refund is NOT given or deductions are made for Postage / Courier, it creates an actionable claim and you will be entitled to compensation too. more  
Many big firms have under hand dealing with the government officials with understanding to violet the rules and officials keep quite. Corruption in our country is deep routed. more  
Madam Anindita Sengupta is very correct. Instead of this resource, which may not serve your purpose (I doubt whether it serves any public purpose as GOI is not expected to do local inspector ’s job), please take it up with local authorities. Regarding favoured treatment for any issue put forward by big business houses, it will be more fruitful, if it is taken up directly (even through this forum) with concerned authorities and if required thorough Judiciary as and when the issue arises instead of brooding over it. more  
always big business house get much freedom from government for example Tata had so much surplus salt in their plant they ask government to make mandatory iodine in salt. though not needed for every one. Jio came and changed nilling from date to only 28 days month billing so in a year they charge for 13 months. jaggery sellers are selling in 900 grams for kg pack,450 grams for 1/2 kg pack and so on. Bsnl has 26 days monthly cycle. big fish always swallow small public at the mercy of government! more  
when there is strong retail shops are in the area , road why to go there ? HIDIANS are tending to westernised ???? But not considering their Business surrounding. more  
Sorry but that does not always apply to all cases. First of all it was the COVID situation which led everyone to order from home. Then the push from the Govt to promote e-commerce platform. And finally there are people who are unable to visit retails shops in the area due age, health constraints. Also, with now rocketing fuel prices people prefer, parking charges etc. people prefer to order online where there is a chance of getting some discount which to some extent helps balance the berserk prices. The local shops are simply selling at MRP - not even a rupee discount.
And lastly all of us are "bhartiya citizens" - online or offline does not dilute this spirit..... more
