Govt asked to check overcharging by eateries

delhi Updated: Jun 04, 2012 00:25 IST

The Delhi government has been asked by a consumer forum to check the “unfair trade practice” of overcharging diners by restaurants for mineral water served during meals and to consider prohibiting the same.

The forum has also imposed a penalty of Rs. 20,000 on restaurant Moti Mahal Deluxe for charging its customer more MRP for mineral water bottle.

The East District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum’s order came on a plea by Delhi resident Raghav Mahajan, who had alleged that the restaurant humiliated him before his family and his guests by insisting that he pay the higher price for the mineral water, due to which he had to return one of the bottles unopened.
