Chandigarh Consumer Forum had very recently directed the Bata Company not to charge for carry bags to their customers. But despite this ruling, the retailors and vendors in Hyderabad are very boldly fleecing their customers by levying anywhere up to to Five rupees for carry bags, that too with the advertisement of the retailor printed on both sides of the bags. Just today ie., 16.04.2019, I had visited the VIJETHA SUPERMARKETS PVT LTD, Ratna Arcade, Kompally, NH44, SECUNDERABAD 500100, at around 8.30pm to purchase groceries. The salesperson asked me to pay Rs.3/- for the carry bag. When I pointed out the ruling of the Consumer Forum of Chandigarh, she only smiled expressing her helplessness. I refused to take the bag because this is a multi crore scam that has been going on in Hyderabad with the connivance of the concerned officers of the Government. I had several times raised the matter in the Local Circles but did not get any encouraging response from the members. Now that the Chandigarh Consumer Forum has given clear directions to the Bata Company not to charge their customers for the carry bags, I request members to raise their voice against this multi crore scam by retailors all over the country, particularly in Hyderabad and the rest of the Telangana, as I know it.
The details of my cash receipt are as follows:
VIJETHA SUPERMARKETS PVT LTS, Ratna Arcade, Kompally, NH44, SECUNDERABAD 500100, PH:9100072137, GST IN:36AACCV7550P1Z0, Dt:16.04.2019, Bill:00000093
It is time the consumers in India unite to denounce this kind of cheating by the retailors which they have been indulging for the past few years. Just calculate and see how many multi crores are being fleeced from the customers on an hour to hour basis. The Local Circles should take up the matter seriously and present the issue to the Chief Minister of Telangana, to take immediate action. No more cheating please. more
