Chandigarh's JW Marriott hotel has been fined Rs 25,000 by the Excise and Taxation Department for over-charging Rahul Bose for a couple of bananas. Rahul Bose had taken over Twitter when he said that he paid Rs 442 for ordering two bananas at the JW Marriott hotel in Chandigarh. Rahul Bose had posted a video with a caption, "You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn't harmful to your existence? Ask the wonderful folks at @JWMarriottChd #goingbananas #howtogetfitandgobroke #potassiumforkings." The incident prompted memes and many also shared their five-star experiences on Twitter.
Rahul Bose said that healthy snacking was indeed an expensive affair for him. Twitterati had also shared their moments.
It seems the fine was imposed after JW Marriott failed to explain things to the department after they issued a show-cause notice to them. "In this matter, a showcase notice was issued to the hotel management. They were called today for the reply. But they could not give a satisfactory reply. So after hearing, they have been imposed with the fine," said R K Chaudhry, Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner, UT Chandigarh. This was reported by ANI.
