“Charging above MRP is a violation of the law. But we still see at airports, multiplexes and hotels, that packaged water is sold at more than the MRP. This needs to be stopped,” Mr Paswan said.
He said packaged drinking water is sold at 10-20 per cent higher rates at these places, “We have sufficient powers to take action against violators and we will take it if consumers file complaints in this regard. There is a penalty and even jail term for violators,” Ms Paswan said on an event. The government has sought an explanation from companies selling packaged mineral water over different MRPs of bottles for various places and directed that the sale price should be same at airports, hotels and malls.
