Jamshedpur, August 28: The Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI) on Friday conducted a meeting in which they suggested remedies against the inflated onion price in the market. According to SCCI, onion prices have soared to a sky-high price recently.
It is available at the mandi or the wholesale market at a dear price of Rs 50 and therefore the price gets higher as it reaches the end consumers. To curb the prices govt. must intervene and open suvidha kendras at several locations.
This would be a lesson for the sellers who suppress onion stocks and give a further push to the inflated price. The kendras will also control the prices to a large extent.
After the meeting Suresh Santholia inaugurated a stall in Sakchi to distribute onions at the base price of Rs 50 per kg. SDO Alok Kumar also said that the administration is trying all possible measures to bring down the prices.
SCCI members Umesh Shah, Vijay Moonka, Bharat Vasani, Ashok Bhalotia, K.L. Mittal, Satyanarayan Agarwal, Sudhir Singh, Dilip Golechha, Dinesh Chowdhary, Manoj Chetani, Vinod Chetani, Bajranglal Agarwal, Padam Agarwal, Pawan Sharma, Rajiv Agarwal, Anil Chowdhary, Rahul Chowdhary, Ram Debuka, Kamal Chowdhary, Santosh Singh, Amar Dhangvajiya, Rameshwar Bhalotia, Saheb Singh, Vishwanath Sharma, Girish, Om Prakash Moonka and Rohit Maharaj were also present.
