Consumer Forum Fined INOX Rs.5000 for Charging More Than-MRP On a Waterbottle
Hyderabad consumers forum asked Inox (one of the largest multiplexes in the city) to pay Rs. 5000 as compensation for charging more than MRP on water bottles.
Vijay Gopal lodged a complaint against the mall with the Forum saying that the malls were looting people. He said that he visited the mall last year and he was not allowed to take his water bottle inside and so he had to buy a water bottle for which they charged him Rs. 50 whereas the cost of the same water bottle outside the mall was just Rs.20.
The forum heard the arguments of both sides and asked the mall to pay the fine. The management was also asked to provide free drinking water to its customers hereafter.
