As per the announcement the packet price of the packed commodities like Mustard Oil, Filter Water bottles, dry milk, tea and juices etc would be sold as per the pack printed prices. It further mentions that the prices of meat, fruits, poultry and eggs would be sold at the fixed rates by Market Committee on a daily basis.

The Deputy Commissioner has suggested the traders to sell the consumer items on fixed rates in the month of Ramazan and has appealed the public to purchase these commodities at rates issued by the district administration and in case of any complaint contact the complaint cell that is set up at the Taluka and district level for launching action against the traders involved in charging more than the fixed rates.

This is a good initiative as generally, the trend is that the traders and local vendors increase the prices of regular basic items especially in the holy month of Ramazan making it tougher for people to afford the basic necessities of life. Strict actions should also be taken against the traders selling items at increased rates in order to facilitate the public.
