“We have notices that post the announcement of fuels prices on Sunday that some of the small shops in the rural areas have failed to change their prices so the prices were effective from the 15th of October from midnight. Given that they were given verbal warning, the follow up inspections were done on Monday to ensure those prices have been observed has stipulated by the minister in his announcement”
Singh adds the commission is continuing with the inspections and retailers who fail to change their prices will be taken to task.
He adds the commission welcomes complaints and if the need arises, the commission office is always ready to intervene.
