stop innocent buyers from being fleeced. ..Mall culture

We used to buy either in retail in local shops or road side or in whole sale from navi mumbai wholesale market.
Typically our retail or wholesale market have been without parking, without clean water , without toilet facility, no fixed pricing etc etc.

So came change with super markets and malls. And finally came Metro cash and carry. It is a wholesale market fully AC, good environment, wheel chair for those who need, fixed price, good toilets, mineral water,unlimited parking  etc etc.. And Lo they give guarantee of whole sale price.
We stopped going to navi mumbai whole sale market for last 3 years since the time we started buying from Metro cash and Carry an international whole sale chain.

Earlier to I had some complaints like box files of Sigma brand being of very inferior quality and that is what they keep etc etc.

But this time I got a shoch of my life when I purchased Ganesh Brand Khakhara 200 gm packet from local market at Rs33/- . As last time I had bought same at Rs 41 from Metro. The MRP on locally purchased pack was Rs 45 where as same item purchased from Metro had MRP of rs 55/-

This clearly shows that vendors are supplying to Metro at prices specially printed for them and customers do not have time to check whether prices / MRP charged by these giant stores are same at market level or no. This is a serious issue and whether Metro and such other malls are officially doing so or their purchasing staff is hand in glove with the suppliers? By making tis experience public I want concerned ppl must wake up and take stern action on this practice and stop innocent buyers from being fleeced.
