Pepsi to sell mineral water at same MRP across India: Paswan

AMN

Packaged drinking water, including Pepsi’s bottled mineral water Aquafina will be sold at the same Maximum Retail Price across the country. Speaking to media in New Delhi Friday, Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India will ensure that bottled water is sold at same MRP at all of its cricket stadiums.

AquafinaMr. Paswan said action can be taken under the law for having dual MRP on any product and consumer courts are already taking action. The Minister said the dual MRP is against the law.

Mr Paswan said following the government push, Pepsi has said that it will sell Acquafina mineral water at one price or uniform MRP across the country. He said the Cricket Board has also directed that all bottled water will be sold at the MRP in its cricket stadiums.

The Minister said there are enough provisions in the existing law to deal with unfair trade practice of charging dual MRP and asked consumers to register complaints.

Last month, the Consumer Affairs Department had sought explanation from companies selling packaged mineral water for having different MRPs of bottles at various places. It had directed that the sale price should be same at airports, hotels and malls.
