New Delhi, Nov 23 (IANS) An apex consumer court posted for Tuesday the hearing of the Rs.640-crore class action suit filed by the Indian government against Nestle’s Indian arm regarding its Maggi instant noodles.
A bench of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission of Justice V.K. Jain and Justice B.C. Gupta on Monday posted the matter for November 24 after the government counsel requested to allow 31 more noodle samples to be tested.
After a five-month ban on its marquee product Maggi instant noodles by the national food watchdog Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, Nestle relaunched its product in the market on November 9.
The class action suit was filed by the government, accusing the company of unfair trade practices.
