Pepsi Co fooling legal metrology and consumers

Aquafina has created a new brand Aquavess after 1 product 1 price rule and is selling it to restaurants with 50 rupees MRP (very hard to see)

Why is the Legal Metrology not able to keep these companies in check. They are outrightly violating rules by creating some product in different name.

See pictures can u see the mrp. more

Dual pricing is already legalised in the respective law. Therefore, if one wants to drink only bottled water while in restaurants, they have to bear it. Otherwise, the water provided free in the restaurants is also extracted through RO and safe to consume. You should not expect to get the product in the restaurant at the price it is available at a pan shop or a kirana shop. more  
I doubt if Legal Metrology dept. can really do anything. I do not think there is any rule which prohibits manufacturers to have two brands with different prices. Its best not to order for bottled water if one thinks the price is unjustified. If that happens in a mass scale then only this practice will also come down. more  
Why does one patronize a hotel/restaurant if not happy with the prices charged. The option is with the customer. All restaurants offer free water also and one need not opt for bottled water which is charged. more  
Yes, it is due the order of Supreme Court. Let someone go on an appeal with request to change the direction. more  
Under this situation , we pay Rs. 20/ in the market and Rs. 50/ and above in hotels we have only 2 options :

* Grin and bear it till some other order comes from the court , if the L.M. appeals with strong arguments .

* Otherwise force such establishments bring the price down by taking a small bottle of water in the bag . more
