Sale of water bottles -

This query is : Resolved 

Is it permissable to sell water bottle for Rs.30, where as the MRP is Rs.20?

Not permissible GST is also included in MRP.

Some STAR hotels, charging more than MRP, in the name of service charges.. but do not fall in trap, as they open the bottle & serve on a plate!

If the water bottle sold for Rs.30 is restaurants , is it permissable ? I heard that there is a supreme court judgement in this regard

The single bench of Justice R.F Nariman gave the judgment that, charging higher prices of packaged drinking water than that of the MRP printed on the packaging, during the service of customers in hotels and restaurants does not violate any of the provisions as the customer does not only come to the hotel or restaurant to buy the bottled water but also for other things which includes the service and ambience of the particular hotel or restaurant and the customer is aware of these things, thus no action can be taken against the respondents.

Thank you all for the replies

If that water bottle is part of service then higher amount can be charged.
