Tripura Government Organizes Sale of Hilsa at Subsidized Price During Bengali New Year


The Tripura government has organized a big event for the purpose of making hilsa fall on the Bengalis in the New Year. The Fisheries Department of Tripura has arranged for the sale of hilsa at subsidized prices in 15 marketing centers during Bengali New Year. Fisheries Minister Sudhanshu Das said that this arrangement has been made for the purpose of making hilsa readily available to the public in the Bengali New Year. Because, no other fish is more popular than Hilsa to Bengalis.
According to him, every year during the Bengali New Year and Vijaya Dashami, the market price of hilsa increases greatly in the hands of the general public. As a result, the high price of hilsa prevents many people from getting a taste of this fish. Therefore, the government has thought to bring Hilsa Mango within the reach of the people in the auspicious moment of New Year. He said, marketing center will be opened in Maharajganj market under Tripura Apex Fisheries Cooperative Society Limited. Everyone can buy hilsa there at a subsidized price. He added that 15 more marketing centers where hilsa is available in other parts of Tripura will be opened. Hilsa will be available at a subsidized price.
Generally, padma hilsa is selling at 1500 to 1800 per kg in Tripura. Ordinary people can buy hilsa at the price of 1070 taka per kg in that marketing center. Besides, two other types of hilsa of low weight will be available at 870 and 770 per kg. The Tripura government will give a subsidy of Tk 500 per kg of hilsa to those marketing centers. Naturally, the general public is expected to be very happy with this move by the Tripura government.
