INOX should stop charging Rs. 50 instead of 20 for a bottle of water

Last day, I went to INOX in the second half of the afternoon with my mother. After entering the multiplex, she suddenly felt very thirsty owing to the heat outside and asked me to buy a bottle of cold water for her. I mostly avoid buying anything from INOX multiplexes because they overcharge almost everything citing luxury charges. When I went to buy it from them, I was literally speechless seeing a different MRP on the bottle.

INOX multiplexes in West Bengal charge Rs. 50 for a 1 Ltr. bottle of water that costs only Rs. 20 outside. A more astonishing thing is that the bottle has two different MRPs for different places. When bought from outside, it has Rs. 20 imprinted on its neck while when bought from INOX, it is priced at Rs. 50. This ill-practice of over-charging customers should be stopped immediately because water is an irreplaceable commodity. Charging more than double, for the same thing that's available outside at a cheaper price, is not only a huge treachery but is also an act of hurting customer needs.
