Market Monitoring Teams from the Food and Civil Supplies Department, Government of Sikkim, are actively ensuring availability of essential commodities.
The teams in Gangtok are inspecting shops, petrol pumps, and LPG distributors to check hoarding and overcharging. Most of the shops are found to be complying with the prescribed rates. However, the teams are advising them to display the rates to ensure transparency. Warnings are being issued to shopkeepers not displaying rates.
The Department has appealed to the consumers to report any incident of overcharging, thus maintaining a fair marketplace.
Stand together for fairness and transparency.
