Reports added a leading web portal reported that the complaints against the restaurants were filed by K Sai Teja, head of social media and public relation at Forum Against Corruption (FAC), a city based activists group. Further they are booked under various sections of the Legal Meterology Act, 2011. Officials told a leading web portal that these hotels could be levied fines up to Rs 25,000 for their first offence and could be fined higher up to Rs 50,000 for their second offence.



Moreover the restaurants in its defense say that the they can practice dual pricing as the SC has granted it, but the Legal Metrology Department defends that dual pricing is only for institutional consumers who buy packaged commodities bearing a declaration ‘not for retail sale’. Hence such products are only for the use of institution and not for commercial purpose.
