Raids to detect errant traders

Sep 2, 2010 4:49:27 AM - itnnews.lk

The Consumer Affairs Authority is launching a special programme to raid outlets that sell soft drinks at higher prices.

The raids are being conducted on the advice of Minister Johnston Fernando. Although the maximum prices of soft drinks and cool drinks have been stipulated, it has been brought to the notice of the authorities that certain traders sell soft drinks at different prices.

The Consumer Affairs Authority says that some traders were found to be selling cool drinks, five or six rupees above the stipulated price.
