District Consumer Forum handed over a fine of Rs 3000 to Reliance Mart situated at Lakecity Mall Udaipur. The fine was issued in a case of selling expired product.
The case dates back to Jan 2016. Mavli resident Avtar s/o Kartar Singh Khatri purchased a Swiss Roll worth Rs 10 from Reliance Mart, Lakecity Mall on 24, Jan 2016. There was also a Rs 2 discount on the Swiss Roll. When Avtar came home and checked the product details, he found that the product was manufactured on 9, Nov, 2015 and had a 75 day expiry date. This meant that the product had expired by the time he purchased.
Avtar then filed a case in District Consumer Forum against the Manager at Reliance Mart, Lakecity Mall, Udaipur. The jury at District Consumer Forum acknowledged the complaint filed by Avtar and handed over a fine of Rs 3000 to be paid by Reliance Mart to Avtar Singh in next two months.
