TCB starts selling onion at Tk 30 kg in Sylhet

SYLHET, Sept 13, 2020 (BSS) – The Trading Corporation of Bangladesh (TCB)
has started selling onion at Taka 30 per kg on Sunday in the open market here
for keeping the supply and price of onion normal.

Besides, TCB is selling other essential commodities through Open Market
Sale (OMS) in the city.

TCB has selected specific dealers to sell necessary essentials at nine
different points in the city, said TCB’s senior regional executive officer
Md. Ismail Mozumder.

The nine selling points are – Bandar Bazar, Machimpur area, Shahi Edgah,
Govt. Aliya Madrasah field area, Tilagor point, Bagbari PDB office area,
Aampur TTC area, Ambarkhana govt colony area and Pathantula point in the
city, he added.

TCB’s senior regional executive officer Md. Ismail said the TCB has fixed
the price of sugar at Taka 50 per kg, lentil at Taka 50 per kg and soybean
oil at Taka 80 per liter.

A consumer can buy a maximum of two kilograms of sugar, 1-kg of lentil and
5 litres of soybean oil at a time.

As people’s purchasing power declined sharply amid the coronavirus
pandemic, TCB’s latest initiative will help the low-income people to buy
onions at an affordable price.
