KUALA LUMPUR: Traders have been reminded to keep to the festive season price control for the eight items announced on Monday as enforcement officers step up their monitoring these seven days, says Fuziah Salleh. The maximum price control scheme for this year's Deepavali, which will be celebrated on Sunday (Nov 12), runs from Thursday (Nov 9) to Nov 15. During this period, the items under the scheme will be labelled with a pink price tag to help consumers identify them. Fuziah said that under the scheme, enforced through the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Act 2011, those found to be selling the listed items above the controlled prices can face up to RM500,000 in fines. The maximum prices of the items for this Deepavali season can be viewed on the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry website at www.kpdn.gov.my.
