The Advertising Standards Council of India was alerted by a consumer about Snapdeal, an internet seller conning consumers with its claims about selling pure coconut oil at a cheaper price, than the MRP – Maximum Retail Price.
Jasper Infotech Pvt. Ltd. (Snapdeal – Amway Persona 100% Pure Coconut Oil): The advertisement claiming the MRP of the product Amway Persona, 100% pure 400 grams as Rs.619, and offering at the discounted price of Rs.239 (61% off), is false, distorts facts and is misleading the consumers as to actual product and discount being offered, as the actual MRP of the product 500 ml (457.5 g) being Rs.190 at which it is sold.
Internet sellers are getting more crooked every day! Before getting too excited by any claims check out the ASCI website before you buy anything!
