CAA removes ceiling prices on dhal, canned fish


The Consumer Affairs Authority has removed the ceiling prices imposed on mysore dhal and canned fish with effect from April 30.

The government, in March, capped the prices of mysore dhal at Rs 65, and a 425 gram tin of canned fish at Rs 100, to provide relief in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, this week the CAA also removed the maximum retail price on sugar, while increasing the maximum retail price of local milk powder, citing it as a move to assist local businessmen.
