Standards for MRP publishing

2 weeks ago I shared a gillette shaving foam bottle purchased by my husband.

There is no MRP (images attached). Subsequently we also checked more bottes at a store - no MRP.

They are supposedly printing at bottom and excuse is it got erased in handling.

Can BIS make rule that MRP has to be in the main area of bottle (where rest of product info is) and not at bottom so it stays till bottle reaches consumer. more

Gillett doesn't care for consumers in India. Its products are also substandard. I have stopped using Gillette products for along time now.
At the same time not printing the MRP on the product is a clear offence of the rules and guidelines. It should be looked into by the respective authorities urgently and action should be taken against the gulity party. more  
in p&g products, specially on vicks veporab tin & bottle, on medicare sachet of marico hardly we can view the mrp. magnifying glass needs for its search. it should be made mandatary to print legibally like car registration number plates. more  
There is no excuse for not printing MRP on the cover of the product. Government action is required. more  
Printing MRP is a greatest tool to loot by many unscrupulous business men. Highly inflated
MRPs are printed on medicine, medical accessories, garments, electric/H/W items, consumables
etc. What is the fun of offering 95% discout on MRP ? There is need to fix genuine MRPs for all items (cost + profit + dealer margin) more  
yes I agree with your views. BIS should looked into it. it is also found that in many cases the MRP printed on the product is different for open market and for the malls. MRP is more at Malls. BIS/Govt should take care of this. Even in one of my case, in on line purchases, they charged almost double of the MRP. When I pointed it to the agency (Amazon), they refunded the excess amount to the wallet but not in my account /card account. more
