An Amazon user wrongly mentioned the account of Civil Aviation instead of Consumer Affairs in his tweet
On Wednesday, an amazon customer named Ankur Sharma, stated that the price of the 11-inch tablet was never Rs. 1,76,900, as mentioned on the website, as they sold it with a 62% discount for Rs. 67,390. He shared a screenshot displaying the iPad Pro 11-inch on sale on the platform.
In his tweet, the user said,
“@amazonIN iPad Pro 11 inch was never of Rs 1,76,900. @MoCA_GoI pl take action for unfair trade practices”
But he made a mistake, as he tagged the Ministry of Civil Aviation in the post in place of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs.
Surprisingly, the Ministry of Civil Aviation replied to the tweet and stated that they are unable to assist. The ministry tweeted,
“We intend to help, but we are busy providing affordable air travel to India. #SabUdenSabJuden”

“Thank you for flagging this. Kindly help us with the link of the product you’re referring to so that we can get this reviewed by our concerned team internally.”
