Chana Dal, a dietary staple for many households, is sold in lots of 2 KG at Rs 60 per KG as compared to the typical market price of Rs 90 to Rs 100 per KG for similar quality chana dal.

NCCF is also making onions available at Rs 25 per KG in lots of 2 KG. This price is about 25% cheaper than the prevailing market rates of Rs 30 to Rs 35 per KG in the NCR region.
