No need to pay extra money for bottled water

bottled water over charge hike prices

Almost all of us are sick and tired of just accepting and paying the hiked-up price for water at places like the railway stations, bus stations, metro junctions and movie theatres. But there’s good news for all of us because from now on, we don’t have to pay any extra money for water. The Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan tweeted about the issue and has assured everyone that water bottles will be sold at the same price everywhere. He took it to twitter to make it clear that no extra money should be charged for bottles water at various public places.

He tweeted- “एयरपोर्ट, होटल व माल सभी जगह एक रेट में मिलेगी मिनरल वाटर बोतल।“ which means that water bottles will be sold at the same rate at places like airport, hotels etc.

He added- “उपभोक्‍ता मंत्रालय के उपभोक्‍ता फोरम में बोतलबंद पानी की अलग-अलग जगहों पर वसूली जाने वाली कीमतों से जुड़ी शिकायतें बड़े पैमाने पर आ रही हैं।“ which means that a lot of complaints were received about the different prices of bottled water.

He further said- “शिकायतों से पता चला है कि कंपनियों द्वारा बाकायदा अलग प्रिंट रेट दर्ज किया गया था।इसका कंपनियों से मंत्रालय द्वारा जवाब भी मांगा गया है” which means that the different rates were printed by the companies themselves to earn money.

His last tweet said- “कंपनियों के हेल्‍पलाइन से लिंक होने से वे हेल्‍पलाइन पर आने वाली शिकायतों का खुद ही संज्ञान भी ले रही हैं।“

Finally somebody has taken a stand on this dual priced practice so we do not have to helplessly accept and pay for the overpriced water bottles.
