[Resolved] Pantaloon Retail / Big Bazaar Gip Noida — Unfair Trade Practices
BBrig DM Bahl
It is a matter of great regret to note that there is no uniformity of rates in Pantaloon Retail outlets, corrupt practices by purchase staff and totally unfair pricing of products being sold at various Food Bazaar outlets.
A concrete example is the case of Apricots Whole being sold by their outlets at GIP Noida and City Walk Select Mall at Saket, New Delhi. There seems to be looting going on of innocent customers. The following table would illustrate the point:-
Date printed on packet
Date of Sale
14 May 2008
9 June 2008
21 June 2008
Select City walk, Saket, New Delhi
24 June 08
23 Jun 08
It would be observed that wide unacceptable variations within GIP Mall Food Bazaar in the same month and drastic difference in price between GIP Mall Food Bazaar on the one hand and open market on the other.
It is obvious that corrupt and unfair practices are going on in Food Bazaar, GIP Mall Noida.
Concept of Food Bazaar is to provide food stuff to customers at cheaper rates than prevailing in the market. But obviously, not only they are selling at higher price than in the market, but, in fact, looting customers in broad day light.
Please investigate matter and take appropriate action to bring down prices below what is prevailing in the market.
Information should also be publicised through media to warn customers of what is going on.
