New Delhi, Oct 7: The Delhi cabinet on Monday directed the Food and Civil Supplies Department and the Delhi States Civil Supplies Corporation to augment the supply of subsidised onions throughout the city, in anticipation of the increased demand post-Navratras.

Chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the meeting also directed the Department and DSCSC to increase the number of mobile vans. At least one mobile van should be provided in each ward of Municipal Corporation of Delhi which entails four to six mobile vans in each Assembly Constituency of Delhi.

The Chief Minister directed the Commissioner, Food and Civil Supplies to intensify regular field inspections and enforcement to nip in the bud hoarding, black-marketing and profiteering of the key kitchen staple.

Enforcement Teams will also check the implementation of stock limits prescribed for onions and violators will be dealt with sternly. (UNI)
