The Directorate of National Consumers' Right Protection (DNCRP) under the Commerce Ministry conducted drives at different wholesale markets in the capital and fined two wholesalers for selling onion at higher prices.

A DNCRP team fined owners of two warehouses at Shyambazar in the capital Tk 50,000 each for selling onions at higher prices, reports UNB .

The team, led by Manzoor Mohammad Shahriar, DNCRP director and head of Dhaka divisional office, conducted the drive.

Magfur Rahman and Mahmuda Akhter, assistant directors of DNCRP, were other members of the team.

The companies - Rajiv Traders and Panama Trades- were selling onions at Tk 49 per kg even though the prices of imported onions were shown at Tk 45 per kg in the displayed chart.

On the other hand, the team found traders were selling soybean at Tk 185 per litre on Saturday.

The government did not agree with the Bangladesh Vegetable Oil Refiners and Vanaspati Manufacturers Association (BVORVMA) for raising price of edible oil.
