Trading Corporation of Bangladesh (TCB) has started selling onions at subsidised rate across the country from Sunday.

Onions are being sold at Tk 30 per kilogram and each person can purchase two kg of onions, reports BSS.

In view of experience due to rising prices in the last two years, imported onions have been sold in TCB trucks this month, TCB spokesperson Mohammad Humayun Kabir told BSS.

He said the initiative was taken to keep the onion price within the reach of the common people.

‘TCB trucks started to sell oil, sugar and pulses since September 4,’ he added.
