Weight of the Packed Products

Dear Consumers.......We all buy products for our daily use unlike vegetables and fruits etc. We keep a track of the prices of such products on a daily basis. Prices differ from store to store, from a roadside vendor to fixed vendor, from offline to online etc. Still, the prices are on the higher side because of higher transportation costs.
Certain products we buy once a week, fortnight or in a month. Did we ever bother to see the price and weight of that product?
Dear Councumser did you ever understand the pricing of the packed products. All the manufacturers have kept the prices at the same rate but had reduced the weight of the product. We don't see a reduction in the weight of the product. We only see the price of the product and are very happy to see that the prices have not been increased.
The nexsus is pan India. Wake Up, Consumer. Try this exercise from today itself. Let us all join hand together to stop this corruption. more

Cheating is their business. Bread supposed to weigh 400 grams weigh 374 grams including their packing material. More specifically brown bread sold by First Food (Payels). Actual weight 350 grams. Getting rich by cheating. more  
In India, business means cheating. For packaged items, (1) number of staff required and its salary (2) time to pack (3) cost of raw materials required for pack (4) rent per sq ft for packed items, (5) staff to tag barcode, etc will be calculated and doubled ( example for 1 kg pack Rs. 0.85×2 = Rs.170). The cost of main product is added by Rs.1.70. Means if item Rs 17, 100 GMs will be reduced while packing itself. This is my experience and also the packed items weight is 1000 GMs including packing materials. more  
In India, everything is possible. Atrocious is the way pricing is done by different companies. Vaslin body lotion is priced at 365 rupee but dealers quote a price of 199 rupee. Similar is the case of medicines. 50% discount is offered on medicines. more  
Mr. P Rajesh Rao Sir.....Certain products are overpriced either 3X or 5X. This gives an edge to the Manufacturer, Distributor, Retailer, Sub-Retailer, etc. about the percent of discount to offer and how maximum margin to be kept by himself.
For example, if the actual cost of the product is Rs. 50.00. Manufacturers will affix the MRP either 199.00 or 299.00. The difference is either 149.00 or 249.00. That all depends upon the retailer to give the discount or not. Please be informed that MRP printed will be different in different States. more  
As long as justice delivery is slow and full of hassles, people will not take up the issues. A system is required wherein an information can be given on line to the authorities to check and initiate prosecution. Traders are not bothered as any punishment takes a long time once in court. more  
Seeing expired dates for Dry fruits ( sold after 18 months of packing, no buyers in market),Thumsup ( old expired stock sold now- 3 months life) Milk daily etc more
