Centre Asks Major Oil Producing States To Reduce Edible Oil Prices

The Department of Food and Public Distribution has asked major oil-producing states to take required measures to ensure the reduction in the prices of edible oils. The directions have been given to eight states, including Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Uttar Pradesh. The reduction would thereby help in bringing down the food inflation levels, by providing relief to customers if prices reduce by Rs 15 to 20 per kilogram.
