MRP de­tails must on goods sold on­line

India Business Journal - - NEWS ROUND-UP -

The gov­ern­ment has made it manda­tory for e-com­merce com­pa­nies from Jan­uary

2018 to print the max­i­mum re­tail price (MRP) on goods and other in­for­ma­tion, like ex­piry date and cus­tomer care de­tails, to pro­tect on­line con­sumers. An amend­ment in this re­gard has been made to the Le­gal Metrol­ogy (Pack­aged Com­modi­ties) Rules, 2011 by the Con­sumer Af­fairs Min­istry in June.

The com­pa­nies have to make these dec­la­ra­tions in big­ger font size so that con­sumers can eas­ily read them.
