Prices of onions in state-run fair price shops to be slashed
With the price of onion in the open market decreasing marginally, the West Bengal Government too has decided to reduce the price of the bulb which it sells at the different Government-run fair-price outlets.
A proposal in this regard was mooted at the meeting of the State Government-constituted Task Force to control prices of food items in the retail market, at Nabanna, which was accepted by Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee who chaired the meeting.
The State Government is selling onion at the rate of Rs 50 a kg at the Government-run fair -price outlets.
This rate will probably come down to Rs 45 a kg. The reduced price would be applicable within another couple of days.
