Luxury Hotel JW Marriott fined Rs 25,000 for ‘Over-Charging’ Actor Rahul Bose for Bananas

A fine of Rs 25,000 has been imposed on hotel JW Marriott here by the Excise and Taxation Department of the Union Territory for over-charging from actor Rahul Bose for fruits served to him in the hotel.

The 51-year-old actor had recently shared the above short video on Twitter where he narrated a bizarre experience of getting a bill of 442 rupees for two bananas at a luxury five-star hotel. The actor’s call for some healthy snack took Twitter by storm and netizens couldn’t hold themselves back from sharing their own ‘Rahul Bose moments’.

Twitter users associated with Rahul Bose by relating the moments when they had to pay for something that cost heavy on their wallets. The fine was imposed after the hotel authorities fail to give a satisfactory reply on a show-cause notice served over the issue.

“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.
