Hotels Can Charge Bottled Water More Than MRP: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has again rejected the government’s plea to re-asses its judgement that permit hotels and restaurants to sell bottled water above MRP as Government has failed to make out any ground to revise the December judgement

With this dismissal, the Supreme Court has clarified once again that no prosecution can be launched against any such establishment.

However Consumer Affairs Minister Mr Ram Vilas Paswan says that government  would urge the apex court to reconsider its decision.

Alternatively, the government can prefer to amend the laws related to ‘sale’ to bring bottled water under the ambit of ‘sale’ and MRP even in hotels.
