City Group has announced an initiative to sell essential commodities at fair prices across various locations in Dhaka to give some relief to the people during the month of Ramadan.
The initiative will see vehicles owned by the conglomerate stationed at key points such as Karwan Bazar, Farmgate, Azimpur, Motijheel, Khilgaon, Press Club, Mirpur-1, Mirpur-10, and Mohammadpur.
Therefore, the Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection (DNCRP) has requested the Dhaka Metropolitan Police extend support to the initiative, according to a notice of the DNCRP.
Under the initiative, 10 products will be sold at subsidised rates.
For example, one litre of Teer soybean oil will be sold at Tk 156, less than its regular price of Tk 163. The price of a five-litre can has been set at Tk 765 from Tk 800.
A 250-mililtre mustard oil will cost Tk 80, one kg packet of chickpeas Tk 100, and one kg chinigura rice Tk 135, according to the price list of the company.
One kg of sugar will be sold at Tk 140.
