McDonalds wins fight over 50 paise

A consumer bought fast food which cost Rs 52.50. But the establishment rounded it off to Rs 53. This was challenged in the consumer forum.

The Delhi High Court last week accepted the argument of McDonalds Family Restaurant that establishments could round off bills to the nearest rupee.

It is in accordance with statutory circulars, notifications and guidelines, reported Business Standard.

In a 2007 circular, Reserve Bank of India had directed nationalised banks that all transactions, including payment of interests should be rounded off to the nearest rupee.

The high court noted this while disposing of the appeal of McDonalds against the ruling of the National Consumer Commission.

A consumer bought fast food which cost Rs 52.50. But the establishment rounded it off to Rs 53. This was challenged in the consumer forum.

It ordered the restaurant to return Rs 0.50, along with Rs 3,000 for mental agony and Rs 1,500 as cost of litigation. The consumer commission dismissed the appeal of the firm as it was a trivial amount.
