All packaged goods in India have to mandatorily bear MRP. MRP is the maximum price at which a commodity in packaged form may be sold to the consumer inclusive of all taxes.

Prior to this amendment, manufacturers had the option to print either the MRP (inclusive of all prices) or the retail price (local taxes extra).

The law of MRP in India is unique as India is one of the few countries where there is mandatory provision of displaying MRP on products. more
