Pune airport officials shut down a food outlet for violating MRP rules

The officials have shut down the outlet and terminated its agreement after a passenger complaint that food at outlet is being sold at a price higher than the printed MRP.

Pune airport officials have taken an action against a food outlet for violating MRP rules. The officials have shut down the outlet and terminated its agreement after a passenger complaint that food at the outlet is being sold at a price higher than the printed maximum retail price (MRP).

Spandan Agrawal, a passenger who filed the complaint, tweeted, "Was at Pune airport early morning today. A food counter names 'Sal Balaji food and beverages' was selling jelly toffee at above MRP and when I said why is MRP struck off, he had a simple answer "Sir, we will sell it obviously at a high price. It's an airport"."

After Agrawal’s complaint, the licence of the vendor was terminated and kiosk was removed from the airport.

An airport official said, "All the food outlets have been given strict instructions. Earlier, there were complaints about the quality of food being served at some of the outlets. Now, the number of outlets has increased. They should be following all the regulations and in no case can a packed product be sold at a price higher than the printed MRP."
