Vegetables sold at higher than govt approved rates in Srinagar
10/28/2020 12:00:41 AM
Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Oct, 27: Even though the State administration had constituted special market-checking squads to prevent overpricing of commodities, the consumers here in Srinagar said that prices of essential commodities have sky-rocketed during the past week.
The consumers allege that the essentials items are being sold at higher prices without any regard to rate lists issued by authorities.
Consumers in different localities of Srinagar alleged that the authorities had given free hand to the unscrupulous traders to loot the consumers.
"We have no option than to buy the vegetables at exorbitant rates. What can we do as the vendors refuse to sell them at CAPD approved rates," Shabir Ahmad, a Bemina resident said.
At Qamarwair, vendors were charging Rs 70 more on every kg of Onion. At Bemina Srinagar, the situation was similar.
"Even Kashmiri Saag produced locally is being sold at Rs 50 a Kg which is double the price fixed by CAPD," Mudaisr Ahmad a Srinagar resident said.
The fruit dealers also violate the CAPD rate list.
Consumers blamed the Food Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department (FCS & CA) for not doing enough to cap the prices of essentials ahead of winter in Kashmir even as traders maintain that they are themselves receiving essentials at higher prices.
