Odisha government on Saturday asked district collectors to take actions against the traders found guilty in hoarding and selling potato and onions at high price under the Essential Commodities Act of 1955, official sources said.
The government today barred large
and bulk consumers of sugar from keeping more than 15 days of
stocks with them, a move aimed at checking hoarding and any
price escalation ahead of festivals Dussehra and Diwali.
