Pepsi to sell bottled water at same MRP across India: Paswan
Pepsi to sell bottled water at same MRP across India: Paswan.
Food Ministry’s push for the same maximum retail price (MRP) for packed food and beverages has led to Pepsi promising to sell its mineral water at one rate across the country.
Paswan said action can be taken under the law for having dual MRP on any product and consumer courts are already taking action.
“Dual MRP is against the law.
Pepsi has said that it will sell ‘Acquafina’ mineral water at one price or MRP across the country.
BCCI has also directed that all bottled water will be sold at MRP in its cricket stadiums,” he told reporters here.
The BCCI secretary has also issued a circular that bottled water will not be sold at price higher than the MRP, he said, adding that the ministry has started getting success after its effort against “dual MRP”.
Last month, the Consumer Affairs Department had sought explanation from companies selling packaged mineral water for having different MRPs of bottles for various places.
It had directed that the sale price should be same at airports, hotels and malls.
“Mineral water bottle will be available at the same rate at airports, hotels and malls,” Paswan had tweeted.
