[Resolved]  Pepsi — Colding Charges being asked in addition to MRP for cold drinks

"COLDING CHARGE",
yes that's the term used by many shop keepers who sell cold drinks such as pepsi, coca cola etc. These shop keepers charge the consumer 1 Rs or 2 Rs in addition to the MRP price for the cold drink. On asking the reason for the charges they say its for the electricity/storage charges for keeping the drink cool.

Well if it is so, why doesn't the chai wala ask for heating charge? And why not all hotel food ask for an additional heating charge for food being served?

This is just robbing the ill informed consumer, for no reason.
This is being practiced in areas such as Mira Road and Bhayandar. I hope some action is taken against these robbers.
