The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Himachal Pradesh is contemplating to make available the popular products of Pantanjali brand at fare price shops regulated by the Food and Civil Supplies Department and Consumer Affairs Corporation.
Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs minister, Kishan Kapoor revealed this during a meeting held here today with the officials of the Patanjali Ayurveda limited.
He said that keeping in view the demand of the Patanjali products in the state, these products including food items, beverage products, sorbets, spices, home-care, juices, curry items, oils, pulses, syrup etc. will be given to the consumers through government depots.
Kapoor said that Patanjali was producing hundreds of consumer products and efforts will be made to provide daily use products to the consumers through fair price shops in a phased manner. He said that due to fluctuation in the prices of food items, especially pulses, rice and flour, their tenders will be done every month.
Giving necessary guidelines in this regard to the officers of the Civil Supply Corporation, he said that by the end of February, all the formalities should be completed to make the availability of Patanjali products available in the state. He said that there would be no compromise regarding the quality of every commodity or food grains.
Managing Director, State Civil Supplies Corporation, SS Guleria apprised the minister about the efforts being made regarding the purchase of Patanjali products. Representatives of State Civil Supplies Corporation and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. were present in the meeting.
