Tailor-made


WITH reference to your editorial ‘Tailor-made’ (July 21), you have suggested that “what is needed is a countrywide price-control and anti-profiteering mechanism during all times of the year to keep a check on the more unscrupulous elements of the market that fleece consumers.”

This is easier said than done. Who will be given the task to control prices?

In Ramazan particularly, prices spiral out of control. A popular cold remedy has disappeared from the market.

When I was finally able to find a store where it was available, I was shocked to see it being sold for Rs95 when its actual retail price is Rs35.
