Earlier, the Nepal Bottled Water Industry Association had decided to increase the price of jar water from October 4.
Acharya said, “We will continue regular market monitoring. We will book if the price hike was not withdrawn. We will lodge case on black marketing by immediately arresting them if the processed water was not sold in the previous rate.”
