Dhangadhi: In a recent regulatory move, authorities in Dhangadhi have taken action against five local business firms for engaging in unlawful activities. The monitoring initiative, conducted within the jurisdiction of Dhangadhi sub-metropolitan wards 15 and 16, resulted in penalties being imposed on these entities for their involvement in unauthorized transactions.

Narayan Prasad Sharma, the Head of the Consumer Protection Branch under the sub-metropolitan municipality, revealed that the decision to take action was prompted by the findings of the market monitoring team. Behda Baba Agro Center, situated in Ward No. 16, was observed to be storing stationery items, fruits, and other materials without proper registration. Consequently, the establishment was issued an initial fine of Rs. 1,000. In a similar vein, the Behada Baba Clinic in the same ward faced consequences during the subsequent monitoring phase.

During a prior evaluation, the team had emphasized the necessity of securing permission for the distribution of pharmaceuticals. Subsequently, a fine of Rs. 1,000 was imposed for the unauthorized sale and distribution of medicines. The monitoring team underscored the regulatory provision that stipulates the need for appropriate registration and authorization for clinics to engage in drug distribution. Any further violations of these provisions will result in legal action. Notably, the regulations also mandate the presence of appropriately trained pharmacy staff, with approval from the drug administration department, for the lawful sale and distribution of medications.

In a distinct case, Chand Grocery Store, located in Dakshin Rampur, was found to be operating without proper registration. Moreover, the establishment was observed to be involved in the sale of alcohol under the guise of a grocery store, alongside the sale of expired goods. Following this observation, the shop was subject to a fine of Rs. 1,000. Similarly, Lakshmi Grocery Store and Ramesh Pashupati Grocery Store in East Rampur were found to be operating hotels and selling liquor without the requisite permissions. Chief Sharma of the Consumer Protection Branch disclosed that a minimum fine of Rs. 1,000 was levied on these entities as a first-time penalty for non-compliance with regulations.

The comprehensive monitoring effort covered a total of 20 different business firms, with the actions against the aforementioned entities underscoring the authorities' commitment to upholding regulations and ensuring fair business practices in Dhangadhi.
