Sell water bottles at MRP in Hotels and restaurants.

This petition had 57 supporters

Today, the supreme court ruled against the application of metrology act 2015 on restaurants and hotels which moved to SC after lower courts prohibited them from it. We have seen a lot of variations in rides everywhere, a bottle of 10 rs kinley is sold at 50 rs at VR Bengaluru food box, and prices vary from 50 - 100 in Hotels. 

      The logic applied here was that no one comes to a hotel just to drink water. So it's a service they're rendering. What is the service charge for then? I do know service charge is not mandatory in all restaurants, but these restaurants which are cringing about selling water at mrp,charge service charge in a fixed percentage too.  The final statement was tjat water bottle is service in hotels and not a commodity , they cannot standardise it under the act. WHAT!?

People like Vijay gopal from Hyderabad and others have been working against such Loots on basic necessities and here, SC has given them a clean chit.  

We need to get as many votes as possible and get our voices heard.  

Also, if I am to be corrected somewhere, please do let me know. 

Thank you.
