When Suresh Chandra Adhikary, a Mayos noodle customer, got a car winning coupon in one of the Mayos noodles packet, he got very excited. He went to claim his prize car but the officials at Himalayan Snacks and Noodles Pvt. Ltd. made fun of him and offered a ‘toy car’. It was on January 24, 2010, Adhikary got the coupon inside the noodle packet stating, "Congratulations, you have got a car."
The Department of Commerce (DoC), in response to Adhikary’s complaint, has filed a case of fraud against the manufacturer at the Kathmandu District Court for cheating its consumers.
