Please don't pay excess amount for mineral water in restaurantToday I read a news-item in the newspaper. The Government has stated that if any restaurant charges hefty amount (more than the MRP) in respect of mineral water, the restaurant-oner may land in jail. I generally rarely dine out in a restaurant. But whenever I do so with my family, the price of the mineral water which I pay pinchees me a lot. In most of the cases, I have to pay more than 2.5 times more than the Maximum Retail Priice (MRP).
The MRP of mineral water is already unreasonably high. Furthermore, the restaurant-owners cheat the diners by asking for more amount. Same thing happens in movie-theatres. So, I welcome the step going to be taken by the Government. I hope that this step is further extended to the movie-theatres also.
But more importantly, people have to be conscious. We must not pay more than the MRP. So, Members! Please don't pay excess amount for mineral water in restaurants. Lodge a complaint if the restaurant demands more than the MRP.
