The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission will recruit more people from the National Employment Centre to help in the Homes Care program.
Chief Executive, Joel Abraham says that they have had a lot of people come forward lodging complaints and therefore need as many people as possible to help them out.
“We will be recruiting fifteen other people to come on board. Now we will be mobilizing staff to the areas where the recipients are getting their cards and also to major participating traders to actually get a feel of or just to talk to consumers and see what are some of the issues that consumers are having.”
Abraham says traders can no longer fool customers as they are fast to identify price disparities and this should come as warning to traders.
He says that three traders will charged later this week for allegedly abusing the Homes care program.
Meanwhile, people in Tavua and Ra will receive assistance from government this week.
