The Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection conducted a raid in Faridpur and collected a fine amounting to Tk 10,000.
The operation, carried out between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm in the bypass area of Faridpur sadar upazila on Saturday, aimed to curb the escalating egg prices that were causing concern among consumers.
Advanced Poultry and Fish Feed Limited was fined Tk 10,000 under the Consumer Rights Protection Act. This penalty was imposed due to their involvement in price manipulation, failure to include egg prices on the sales receipts, and inadequate storage and display of the price list.
Assistant director Md Sohail Sheikh of the Faridpur District Directorate of National Consumer Rights said that the raid targeted egg depots, with the primary objective of stabilizing the prices of this essential commodity.
