[Resolved]  Tasmac — Charging more than MRP.

Sir,

I am living in K K Nagar, Chennai. All TASMAC liquior shops in K K Nagar are charging more than the MRP. Recently the T N Govt. has rounded off the prices in order to avoid the employess not to take the balance amount which they refuse to pay back to the customers and to increase the revenuve to the govt. All the efforts taken by the Tamil nadu govt, is waste and the employees are charging again excess over the MRP.

When I asked the employee he said very cool that the share goes upto the top level.

Will the TN govt, take any action against this day robbery.

This is true. I faced this issue of paying above MRP. last time for a bottle of 350 rupees i had to pay 50 rupees extra as they say it is the revised price.

Their attitude is like this
1. u r a drunkard-an ugly act u r performing, u don't have the right to complaint(many people made to believe this way by them).
2.We (the tasmac employees)are goons;look at our attire and arrogance and masculinity(??) .
3.go and complaint...share goes to the top. nothing happens to me.

<b>This is really a bad practice and a social evil.it has got various catastrophic social dimensions as well is government totally blind about this?are they nurturing thieves?</b>

solutions/suggestions:

1.private participation as in Bangalore and competition among dealers(there should be quality checking ensured then).
2. proper centralized billing system.
3. government run shops or websites where we can pay through cash/card/internet banking and get a voucher for a particular liquor item.This can be used within a specific period(10 days or so )to buy liquor from any tasmac shop. be cautious..if it is a shop issuing vouchers then they should not be selling liquor. so we pay there and get voucher.go to tasmac shop and give voucher to get particular item.
( in case of internet voucher printouts, enable the tasmac person to send an sms with voucher code and verify authenticity/log on and confirm it (challenge response system will do here..let the consumer say passcode and check it matches)this is not required i[censored] paid thro cash and gort a hologram ed voucher).
a web based system is cool -as there are no human interactions required.

so no-money transactions with the man at at tasmac shops.(or they will say net is down -we are unable to check authenticity)

4.employing women for tasmac jobs(think it will make things better...who knows!).

5.strict governmental interference and action against violations.
Great suggestions..let government put a fullstop to this barbarian practice.
In all over tamilnadu our goverment is helping to tasmac employees to cheat public...
if our goverment give sivere punishment to cheeting tasmac employees they will stop cheeting our poor public...
This is really an Important complain which this person has brought forward. Most of the people do not bother to complain or they do not want to take the pain to complain regarding this issue because they feel shy or embarassed or even they are not interested. Normally the Tasmac employees round of the actual Mrp and earn 1 to 4 rupees per bottle. But now even after rounding of the amount, they still take 2 to 3 rupees per bottle which makes them earn a lot of money. We do not know whether they run the Tasmac or the government runs it. It is a big time robbing, and they demand extra cash without any Shame.. I also wonder whether the government itself is asking to demand for that money from the customers. This happens in all the Tasmac shop all over Trichy. We are slowly getting irritated due to these attitudes caused byt the employees. I would request you take any action possible to control it.

Regards,
L. Julian Suresh

Talking about rounding off the MRP...Government indirectly made an extra killing by the move and look at the revenue they would be earning...! and infact the government would be only thanking the TASMAC employees for their action...and who knows probably the poor man is made to enrich the treasury of the government and the TASMAC employees...LONG LIVE TN Govt ..at the cost of blood and sweat of the common man and his family. After all as rightly said ...the attitude of everybody is .."why bother let the drunkards cry loud ..it would not be heard...after all they are drunkards...!
TASMAC in vellore opp to bigchik restaurant is overcharging on a beer they are charging rs.70 but its actually only rs.60.almost every brand and product is being overchared when i tried to argue with him he just shouted back saying we have the right so just [censored] off.
TAMIL NADU government is helping these guys by not taking any care about the customers.A liqour consumer is already being robbed by the govt so they can give free colour tv's, rations etc and also fill their pockets and votes ballots but why even allow those TASMAC goons?

retailers in guwahati — charging extra money on MRP

Retail stores in guwahati, Assam charge an extra amount of Rs. 2 above MRP on soft drinks and Ice creams calling it "The Cooling Charge". They say that this money is charged by them in order to maintain refrigerators. However these products are supposed to be chilled while being sold. Hence this amount is totally unjustified. When asked to provide the bill, they refuse to do so. This problem is not particular to any one shop. All the shops in guwahati are involved in this. Please do something about it.
