Banglar Fasal: State initiative to sell veggies at a fair price
The State Co-operation Department has taken steps to introduce Banglar Fasal, an initiative to sell vegetables at a fair price after procuring them directly from farmers. It will be introduced in Barrackpore and then gradually extended across the state. The stall in Barrackpore will come up on June 22, said Arup Roy, the State Co-operation Minister.
It may be mentioned that earlier a project similar called Sufal Bangla was introduced. This new project will be helpful to both common people and farmers. The farmers will be benefitted as the State Government will directly procure their cultivated crops and on the other hand, common people will get vegetables at a fair price.
It will also help to curb the problem of unnecessary increase in the price of essential commodities as there will no more be the intervention of middlemen.
