The Advertising Standards Council of India ASCI had to pull up the online seller Amazon for another misleading advertisement while selling a snack.

Amazon.com Inc. (Gits Instant Dahivada Snack Mix): The price offer “MRP Rs.130.00, Offer Price Rs.67.00, You Save Rs.63.00 (48%)” of Gits Instant Dahivada Snack Mix 200g in the advertisement is false and misleading, as the actual MRP of the product is Rs.65, at which it is being sold.

MRP means the Maximum Retail Price.

Online sellers are getting craftier by the minute so one has to check the prices with other sellers before buying anything.
