Mumbai: Which use to seem like an impossible dream is now a reality for movie lovers. People can carry their own home-cooked food in multiplexes in Maharashtra as the state government made the announcement to this effect on Friday. The Maharashtra government has assured that if the multiplex personnel stops you, it will take action against the erring multiplex. The government will also soon resolve the issue of higher pricing of eatables and beverages in multiplexes. Maharashtra minister Ravindra Chavan made this announcement in Nagpur.
“The Home department will decide within six weeks, a policy on taking action against such multiplexes and malls,” Chavan announced on the floor of the House. He also announced that as per Central government’s policy, the MRP of items will have to be uniform at all places. Recently the Bombay High Court had pulled up the state government and multiplexes based on a PIL on how multiplexes were not allowing people to bring in food stuff procured from outside multiplexes and were charging an exorbitant amount from people who bought food products from within the multiplexes.
