KATHMANDU: The Department of Commerce, Supply and Consumer Protection Management has asked the people to call at 1137 to inform about the incidents of black-marketeering of masks.

General Director Netra Prasad Subedi urged the people in general to inform about such incidents through the toll free number 1137 following reports of an artificial shortage of medical goods including mask and sanitizers in the market at a time when the coronavirus is fast-spreading.

Subedi further informed that if any firms or dealers are found selling mask at a high price by creating an artificial shortage, they will be charged up to Rs 300,000 and a case will be filed against them.

He has informed that the Department has already taken actions against some firms for hiking prices of masks illegally.
