The administration of Guwahati, the largest city in India’s eastern state of Assam, will control the profit gained by poultry traders in the city to curb the poultry price hike. Traders, who buy the birds from farmers and sell them to retailers have been manipulating the price, which is on the rise in Assam and throughout India. “The traders reap hefty profits at the expense of farmers and consumers. We need to keep that in check,” said Varnali Deka, Deputy Commissioner of the administration. The administration has set a price of USD 1.6/kg.
