SIX restaurants in Medan Tuanku, Kuala Lumpur are the first to receive the fair price stickers from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the ministry, DBKL and Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry were working together to identify business premises that offered fair prices to help the people make informed decision about their purchases.
“We have prepared 1,000 stickers to award deserving traders.
“One of the main criteria is clear and fair display of prices. Other factors include the service provided, such as return and exchange of goods and efficient customer service, as well as a good level of cleanliness,” he said at a press conference after visiting the six restaurants that were awarded the fair price sticker.
Also present at the event were Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Dr Loga Bala Mohan and Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib.
“I was told that the six restaurants have maintained the same price for over two years, sais Tengku Adnan.
“However, we will conduct checks every six months to ensure these premises maintain the required standard and pricing, failing which the sticker will be removed.
“We are also in the midst of proposing a mobile application to enable consumers to check out the chosen premises, to make smart choices.
“We understand the plight of city dwellers, especially the urban poor who are under a lot of stress having to deal with the rising cost of living,” he said.
He added that the exercise would be extended to Putrajaya and Labuan.
