COLOMBO (News 1st): During the course of this year, legal action was instituted against 2000 vendors who sold rice at prices exceeding the government-imposed controlled price, the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) said on Wednesday (Mar. 30).

The raids to nab traders who sell rice at higher prices will continue across the island, the CAA’s Investigation Unit noted.

According to the Consumer Affairs Authority, the government imposed maximum retail prices of Rs. 96 per kilo of Nadu rice, Rs. 98 per kilo of Samba rice and Rs. 93 per kilo of Kekulu rice.

The Consumer Affairs Authority urged the people to inform the District Offices or the CAA Head Office about vendors who sell rice above the earlier mentioned set prices.
