Mi Air Purifier Filter (Blue)

Filter for this device is being sold at a premium price since the start of the month on Amazon. Just saying.

Regular price is being offered as lightning deal as of now.

this is how amazon responded to my complaint. if anyone bought the filter in recent days, can they check the mrp on the packaging?

Selling above MRP and MRP tampering is very common in Amazon. But in this case there is a chance that Xiaomi maybe selling the filter below MRP and Amazon is selling at MRP. Only way is to check the actual product packaging.

From January it's mandatory to display the product MRP in e-commerce sites.

Yup. It's likely that the box has 3000 on it. But I have never seen it listed above 2500 on mi website. Hopefully someone would be able to confirm.

My major annoyance is that the price was raised on November 1 which is when the things started going downhill in Delhi NCR region.

Another annoying thing which I saw with amazon is the way they handle lightening deals, Real price is 1999 and lightening deal price is 1998 Rs and then they show that deal got claimed 70 percent, How is that possible?

someone mentioned on reddit that this is done when they have amazon pay offer on lightning deals. so unless the product is put in lightening deal, you would not get amazon pay cashback. but you are right, this happens even when there is no amazon pay cashback deal going on.
