Loot of Catch water company - Will LM act
Some time back a fellow member (Sanjana Gupta) reported how Catch water company was looting consumers selling 30 rupees 1 ltr bottle also at 60 rupees and 100 rupees. Today i encountered a catcb bottle 500 ml for 125 rupees. Attached are my pictures and those shared earlier in circle.
Will legal metrology take action now please?? Such companies should be shut for manipulating consumers. If consumer affairs wont act I would like to escalate this. more
Why there is so much fuss about water pricing?Being a market place all sort of products are available and as a consumer you have the freedom to choose as per your requirement and budget.Businesses will market their products by adding some USP or even some gimmic.In certain countries beer is cheaper than water.so they are also looting?Need of the hour is to use your discretion and not fall in any marketing trap. more
Earlier also I had said that if the Govt. authority attached to this circle is taking any action than they should disclose on this circle. practically we the ordinary people expect to catch attention of authority to our grievance. But so far we have not seen any case resolved.
At all if this is up to their attention than my suggestion is to initiate action of anti profiteering act whenever there is vast difference between cost and sale price. more
Now we are purchasing water more then petrol/Diesel. Same on us. more
First of all, why people are crazy about buying such products, even though many other products with reasonable price and good quality. That is why these companies are looting the public. more
We can not do anything, unless Hon'ble Supreme Court re-examine the order passed stating that Malls, Cinema Halls and Star Hotels are free to charge higher price. more
Also the glass bottle product seems to have printed Premium mineral water from Himalayas from above 15000 feet.
I am not sure how they obtain water from such sources and then package and sell it across India.
If this is true then of course the price is justified based on the logistics.
The throwaway bottled water is always RO water and is priced at Rs. 20 per litre. The cost of producing this water is less than Rs. 1/- per litre. Rest all is logistics, advertising, sales commissions and profits.
As long as we feel ashamed to carry a bottle of water with us from home, then these companies will keep minting money. more
I was also wondering what that 15,000 feet is . Thanks for clarifying . These informations should be subjected to check by the authorities . Is it really brought from Himalayas ?
How do they bring , is it bottled there , or brought in tankers and bottled locally . All these questions have arisen now . more
