Pepsi Co fooling legal metrology and consumers
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.

* 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
The same was ruled out by S.C. , saying that Hotels and Restaurants were not bound by Legal Metrology Dept .and could not be punished for selling over M.R.P.
The hon'ble judge says that the Ambience provided by these establishments needed to be accounted for .
But there is an M.R.P. Rule . There can't be dual pricing of the same product brand one at Rs. 20 & other at 50/ .
What do we do at this ? If a nimboo pani costs Rs. 10 or 15 on the road side , Rs. 65 in a restaurant it is okay . As it is also prepared under the ambience besides being served , and listed in the price list .
IT IS NOT SO WITH THIS PRODUCT [Mineral water ]THAT IS NOT PREPARED UNDER THE SAME AMBIENCE BUT ONLY SERVED UNDER AMBIENCE .
Legal Metrology Department should seek legal assistance to fight out this anomaly . more
