Probably, you had been in the situation many a times in India. Shops at theatre complexes, motels and restaurants sell food, snacks or drinks at a higher rate than the Govt. Specified MRP (Maximum Retail Price). Actually, the MRP includes all sorts of taxes and nobody is supposed to sell at a higher price than MRP.
I am asking you to read the following mail from one such concerned citizen from India. I have given my advice to the person (May publish if I receive any reply for this post).
Then, comment on this what will YOU do at a similar situation.
"Hi MuruganI am Abhilash.I stay in India.I am a strict anti-bribery guy.I hate to endorse and support corruption,cause that's the MOST dangerous disease eating away the society;according to me.And first and foremost,that shouldn't be the way of life just because that shouldn't be.It's unethical and illegal.One of the things that irritates me a lot is the selling of some goods at a price more than the MRP.This can be experienced a lot at film theatres,eateries at large shopping malls,at pilgrimages and other places where people are vulnerable for exploitation. I sometimes argued with the shopkeeper but I succeeded only a few times.At other times,I just refrained from buying the thing.I hope you are getting my point.Could you give me a suggestion on how to handle this freaky stuff?Also could you provide with information sources that deal with solutions for this problem.ThanksAbhilash"
