Shop in Malaysia fined for not displaying takeaway charges

PETALING JAYA - The Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Ministry (KPDNKK) has imposed a compound on a shop at the Awan Besar R&R for not displaying its takeaway charges.

On Sunday, the Kuala Lumpur KPDNKK found that the shop failed to display price tags for "ikat tepi" (takeaway) charges - an additional 30 sen (S$0.10) - for asam boi drinks and other beverages.

"The premises was issued a compound for an offence under the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011," read a statement posted on the Ministry's Facebook page on Monday.

The owner of the premises was told to display price tags, including additional prices for takeaway.

According to Kuala Lumpur KPDNKK director Ummi Nasrah Othman, 14 business premises at the Awan Besar R&R including a clothing shop and a mini-market were inspected during the operation.
