Fish vendors warned, licences to be checked

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 2 � Taking serious note about reports of fish being sold at exorbitant rates at some markets in the city, the Kamrup Metro district administration has asked retailers to refrain from such practices and warned of action in case of non-compliance.

The administration has also directed the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) to verify the trade licences of fish sellers to ensure that illegal business is not carried out.

The district administration has also convened a meeting with the market committees on July 3 at the conference hall of the Deputy Commissioner's office, an official statement said today.

A three-member team led by an executive magistrate along with police officers, GMC officials, Food Safety department personnel and others have, since yesterday, started daily inspection of markets.

During a visit to Ganeshguri area, the team found that the retailers and sub-whole sellers purchase fish from Paltan Bazar wholesale fish market but they are not provided any cash memo or challan.

�The district administration is considering the matter seriously. During inspection it came to light that most of the fish vendors do not have trade licence. The Deputy Commissioner has directed the GMC to verify the trade licence of fish sellers, who are running the business without trade licence,� it said.

A similar inspection was also carried out at the wholesale broiler farms in various locations of the city. The personnel verified documents like cash memo and challan to determine actual wholesale and retail prices of broiler chicken.
