Subsidised vegetable centres in Mumbai
To counter inflated rates, 11 centres have been set up across Mumbai to sell vegetables at a discounted rate. Prices are slashed by 20-70% at these outlets.
The state government has launched an initiative to supply essential vegetables at a discounted rate in Mumbai. The 11 centres have been set up across the city aims to do away with middlemen and retailers. As of now, only 11,000kg of various vegetables will be available at these centres. However, if the initiative turns out well, the figure could increase as the government plans to launch 200 such centres across the city.
