    COVID-19: Flying Squads To Keep An Eye On Black Marketeers In Hailakandi

    The Hailakandi district administration constituted a five-member flying squad each for Hailakandi, Lala, Katlicherra and Algapur circles

    Flying squads have been formed to keep an eye on black marketeers and hoarders who are trying to hike the prices of essentials during the lockdown period in Hailakandi district of Assam.

    An order was issued to this effect by Deputy Commissioner, Keerthi Jalli.

    Following reports of hoarding and black marketing received from various sources, the administration constituted a five-member flying squad each for Hailakandi, Lala, Katlicherra and Algapur circles. 

    The flying squads will monitor the prices of essentials in the wholesale and retail grocery shops, control price rise and black marketing. 

    The flying squads will supervise the proper sale of essential commodities in the retail and wholesale markets, door-to-door delivery of essential services, monitor lifting and distribution of additional rice by GPSS and FP shops, Jalli informed. 

    “They will also monitor the lack of sanitation and violation of social distancing norms in the groceries as a means to control the spread of coronavirus,” she added.

    Additional Deputy Commissioner, KS Ahmed, who has been made the overall in-charge, will submit the daily status report to the Deputy Commissioner. 

    A district-level committee has been constituted headed by District Development Commissioner (DDC), Vikram Dev Sarma for procurement of milk, cattle feed, chicken, poultry feed, meat, eggs, and to oversee the status of health of domestic animals during the lockdown period. 

    “The administration is already arranging door-to-door delivery of vegetables through selected hawkers,” Jalli informed.
