A representative of an NGO has filed a complaint with the Legal Metrology department regarding the violations in Talluri Theaters, Kushaiguda. The complainant brought to the notice of the department for charging more than MRP on cool drinks and also selling packaged commodities without following Legal Metrology rules.
Based on the complaint last month, the Inspector of the Legal Metrology department visited the premises and conducted inspection. A case has been registered for contravention of Sec.18/36 of the Legal Metrology Act, 2009, R/w Rule 18(1) of the Legal Metrology (Enforcement) Rules, 2011, and Rule 4, Rule 6(2) of the Legal Metrology (PC) rules.
The complainant, Srikhande Umesh Kumar asked people to be vigilant about their rights and complain in case they observe any deviations. Violation of MRP is a blatant misuse in all the single-screen theaters across the city. There were instances when action was taken in incidents like this but nothing has changed much as a whole.
