Kathmandu, July 19: In the pretext of the excessive price hike of the vegetables and fruits, a government team conducted a market monitoring and took action against 19 traders for brokering at Kalimati and Balkhu vegetable markets.
A team from the Department of Commerce, Supply and Consumer’s Protection took action against eight traders from Kalimati, and 11 others from Balkhu vegetable markets as the traders failed to produce invoices.
The traders could not show the price bills prepared while buying veggies from the agro product centres. They were fined Rs 5,000 each by the Department. The monitoring team also fined Rs 10,000 each to two brokers.
Similarly, those in the management of the Kalimati and Balkhu vegetable markets were directed to hold a discussion with the Department because they were not able to control the brokers. The traders were also urged to compulsorily maintain the price list and issue bills/invoices. (RSS)
