Did you know that a hotel or a restaurant can charge you over the MRP for a bottle of water?

Do you know what strategy to use if your company is in of violation of the Legal Metrology Act?

Did you know that e-commerce platforms now come under the purview of the Legal Metrology Act? Do you know that the rules do not allow dual MRP printed on the packaged commodity?

Did you know you could face a jail term or an imprisonment of a year if you did not make declarations as mandated by the law on packaged goods?

In the last decade, consumer awareness has reached new heights. Individuals were earlier aware of everything they purchased in the market and could hold the shopkeeper or the company liable for any mischief. However, with the introduction of e-commerce websites, they are now helpless and unaware if the quantity or quality would be as mentioned in the forum.

So far, only the MRP was mandatory to be mentioned by e-commerce website. With the amendment introduced by the Legal Metrology Department from 1st January 2018, e-commerce websites are required to mention details such as the net quantity, etc. as mandated by the law on their platform.

With recent judgment of the Supreme Court in the case of Federation of Hotels and Restaurants in India v. Union of India, where the court ruled that hotels and restaurants do not fall within the purview of the Legal Metrology Act as there exists a component of service along with sale, it is important to stay updated with the latest rulings and amendments to this law.

Did you know that with the introduction of the revised GST rates, manufacturing companies, retailers and wholesalers were given a period of six months to update their labels with the correct MRPs?

With the numbers in terms of consumer awareness increasing in god-speed and the latest amendments in the law, it is imperative that not only do consumers, but lawyers, in-house counsels in manufacturing FMCG companies, etc. keep themselves updated.
