Seller sold alcohol bottle above m.r.p.
« on: July 19, 2016, 12:47:02 PM »
Few weeks back I purchased a Alcohol bottle on which M.R.P. was INR 2470, but seller sold me bottle at INR 2700 and even bill having the INR 2700. After I realized I approached him back and he told me that rate has been increased but they don't have new M.R.P. on bottle till now, even he had some govt. documents also which was stating that rate has been increased but new M.R.P. bottle will come within 4 months.

But I think that's wrong any how seller sold something above M.R.P. So should I file a Consumer court against him? And If yes so what will be the whole procedure and how many time I will need to go to the court and for how much compensation I can demand because seller made me to visit him so many times and call him also but all the times his attitude was ridiculous?

It is illegal to sell any goods above MPR. You seem to have a very good case.

If you file the case then you will be entitled to refund, compensation as well as legal cost. Since the price of the bottle is only Rs2700, I do not think you will get compensation for more than Rs15,000-20,000/- along with legal cost of say Rs.5000/- which I believe is good. However, it difficult to predict the amount of compensation and also depend on the loss actually suffered by you.

Since this case will attract provisions of unfair trade practice, it will attract huge compensation which may run to few lacs from the company, if proved, but most certainly payable to welfare funds etc.

You do not have to visit yourself if you hire a lawyer. Otherwise on an average 10-15 occasions.
