Parle company has been penalised by District Consumer Forum for cheating consumers regarding content weight.
Biscuit packets packed by Parle company were found short of mentioned weight on the packet. Anil Agarwal of Ashok nagar bought 10 packets of ParleG biscuits from Super market at Shastri circle. He paid 48 rupees for the biscuits. Weight mentioned on the packets was 70 grams but when the packet was weighed on the jewellery scale, the weight of the packet was less by 21 gm and 215 mg. The weight of the biscuit wrapper was 1 gm and 25 mg.
This clearly shows that the company is cheating its consumers by mentioning wrong weight of the product. President of Consumer Forum Randhir Singh Naruka and Member Anubha Sharma penalised Parle company of Mumbai and ordered them to pay the cost of biscuits along with 4 thousand rupees as compensation and case fees to Anil Agarwal.
