A majority of Indian shoppers do not complain about retailers and traders charging for shopping carry bags since this charge help it to become a habit for them, according to a latest consumer survey. As per community platform LocalCircles, 83% of consumers polled said a charge for carry bag serves as a reminder for them to carry their own bag. 69% of the respondents said they always carry a bag while 25% said they carry a bag sometimes. The survey, however, highlighted that consumers have issues when retailers charge for paper bags which have a company branding on them. Consumers feel it is unfair for retailers to charge for such paper bags as it acts as a marketing medium for the brand and the cost of these bags should be absorbed in the company’s marketing budget.
