Soon, electronic goods to be sold at ration shops
The State Food & Supplies Minister said on September 13 that television, washing machines, refrigerators and similar electronic products will soon be available at ration shops across the State.
The minister was attending a programme at Khadya Bhavan to mark the occasion of the availability of as many as 403 products of a leading retailer at 1,171 ration shops in North 24 Parganas district.
The step is an effort on the part of the State Government to convert ration shops across the State into ‘mini-malls’ so that people get access to products of leading brands at a much lower prices.
The Food & Supplies Department had signed an MoU with the Future Group at the Bengal Global Business Summit this year, with the objective of ensuring availability of branded products that are sold by the group, in its popular supermarket chain across the state, at the ration shops.
