Chandigarh, May 10

Due to a sudden spike in the number of Covid cases in Chandigarh, concerns have been raised about the availability of essential commodities to the common man at fair prices. 

The Chandigarh Administration  has directed all Food and Supplies Inspectors as well as the Inspector, Legal Metrology, to maintain vigil in their respective areas and start drives to monitor issues related to overcharging, black-marketing, hoarding, etc. The administration has also sought an action taken report at the earliest.

To facilitate the general public and for providing any information or registration of any complaint, a consumer helpline, 1800-180-2079, has been activated.
