The West Bengal Government is setting up the State’s first fair price vegetable market in Behala. This is yet another of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s projects for easing the lives of the common people.
This comes after the huge success of her concepts of fair price medicine shops and diagnostic centres, and the temporary fair price stalls for selling potatoes and other vegetables.
The market is being set up by the State’s Agricultural Marketing Department, with the assistance of Kolkata Municipal Corporation.
It would be located on a 7-8 cottahs parcel of land on Rajani Mukherjee Road in ward number 118 (which is in Behala).
Vegetables, fish, eggs and meat would be sold in the market. Rs 30 lakh has been spent on the construction. Forty-one shops, and 18 slabs for fish and small vegetable-sellers, have been built.
