The arrival of mangoes from other states has also started increasing in the Mumbai Agricultural Produce Market Committee. Happy Konkan mangoes have a taste unmatched by other mangoes, which explains the highest price. But with the aim of earning profit, some traders cheat the consumers by saying that mangoes from foreign states are hapu from Konkan. The traders have been warned by the market committee that these types should be stopped, otherwise legal action will be taken against the culprits. Moreover, any mango that looks like hapoos in the market right now is directly sold as Konkani hapoos, Devgad hapoos. Most of the time, mangoes are sold outside on the street, in carts, in mango shops. Consumers were also asked to taste the mango when buying it.
Mangoes from Karnataka, Kerala have a different taste from Happy. Consumers are likely to be misled as Karnataka mangoes look similar to Konkan mangoes. Karnataka mangoes fetch an average price of Rs 150 per kg. But some traders pack them in boxes and sell them at the rate of two and a half thousand rupees. The market committee has explained that the mango that comes from foreign states should be sold under the name of the mango of that state and its variety. After this, if it is noticed that mangoes from foreign countries are being sold under one name instead of its specific variety and if any complaint is submitted to the Market Committee, legal action will be taken as per the provisions of the Maharashtra Agricultural Produce Marketing Act. , 1963, Rules, 1967 and its by-laws, warned the Market Committee.
