shopkeeper at guwahati railway station overcharges for cake, viral video sparks debate | watch

A video circulating widely on social media has sparked concerns among internet users, depicting an incident at Guwahati Railway Station where a shopkeeper allegedly overcharged a customer for a product. In the video, the customer confronts the shopkeeper about the extra charge, leading to a heated exchange. However, upon being challenged, the shopkeeper appears to become agitated and eventually returns the money to the customer.

Avi, an Instagram user, shared the video showcasing a customer's encounter at a shop, where he intended to purchase a ₹40 cake, only to be asked for ₹45 by the shopkeeper. When questioned about the discrepancy, the shopkeeper remained silent and eventually returned the money to the customer. The shopkeeper can be seen attempting to strike the customer's phone in the video.

According to Avi, the shopkeeper faced repercussions for his actions, including being fined ₹1,000 and dismissed from his position. The video, posted on June 4, has since garnered over 10.7 million views and numerous likes and comments.

A user wrote, "Even in Bangalore shopkeepers do this they overcharge without any reason do show same behaviour like this man."

A second added, "He can't and should not charge more than the MRP. His behaviour is also very wrong."

"Good! Such persons need to face the law! And citizens need to start complaining instead of showing sympathy towards their state! They may have difficulties, but the law doesn't allow them to charge above the prices set forth!" posted a third. A fourth commented, Same thing happened to me yesterday. But I refused to pay extra."

"It should be the same as their original price, but there are some factors which control the price in the places like railway stations and airports, such as the rent of the shop, lack of time for customers, availability of goods etc. But the shopkeeper's behaviour was not good," added another.
