The state government, on October 19, imposed restrictions on stocking of dal, edible oil and oil seeds to keep a check on prices of these essential commodities during the upcoming festive season.

Out of the 27 godowns raided, action has been taken on owners of 18 godowns as per the Essential Commodities Act 1955.

Opposition Congress and NCP have been targeting the BJP-led Maharashtra government on steep prices of tur dal, which has crossed Rs 200 per kg in Mumbai.
