The state GST Department raided two cold stores – Kissan Cold Storage and CC Cold Storage – at the Jalandhar bypass chowk. The team comprised ACST VP Singh, State Tax Officer (STO) HS Naghi, ACST SS Multani , STO Kamaljeet Singh and other officials of the department. The raid was conducted to check hoarding of pulses as these are not available for the general public due to lockdown amidst Covid-19 scare.

Stock at stores was found okay, but the department directed owners not to hoard commodities. While talking on phone with The Tribune STO HS Naghi said, it was routine visit to ensure checking of hoarding of pulses in such crucial time.

Department officials called dealers whose stock was stored in cold storage and directed them to get curfew passes and make uninterrupted supplies to households. If anybody was found violating the rules he would be punished, officials added.

“Shop owners are not hoarding stock, but are unaware of the procedure to obtain curfew passes. They have been made aware regarding the same and instructions have been issued to them,” Negi added.
