New Delhi,01/12/18:Famous branded companies marketing in packaged water-bottles have devised new technic to mint money. They have introduced premium-quality water-bottles in addition to normally packed water-bottles, with premium-branded water priced at three times more than the normally packed water-bottles by the same company.
Various ministries, departments and public-sector-undertakings of both central and state governments should be directed that premium-branded costlier packaged water must not be purchased at public-cost.
Best is to set up water-bottling plants of Rail-Neer marketed by Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation Limited IRCTC may be set up in different parts of the country in large numbers so that packaged water purchased at cost of public-exchequer may be supplied by IRCTC only. Rather Rail-Neer should also be then marketed through public-outlets to force private marketers to reduce their retail-price. One time investment by IRCTC on setting up plants in large numbers may be recovered in very short time due to heavy demand of packaged water throughout the country. IRCTC can generate funds by issuing public-bonds specially for the purpose.
