Market monitoring has been started in the district targeting Mahashivaratri festival. The District Administration Office has been conducting regular joint monitoring during the festival. Earlier, monitoring was also carried out during Dashain and tihar.

 Information Officer at the District Administration Office, Khagendra Bharti, informed that the monitoring has been started by giving priority to the Mahashivaratri fair area. In the first phase, the market of Dilasani village municipality area of ​​the district has been monitored. According to the Joint Market Monitoring Team, the market has been monitored as a fair will be held on the occasion of Mahashivaratri in Gokuleshwor area of ​​the village. During the monitoring, out of the eight shops selling non-food items, four were fined Rs 10,000 and four were fined Rs 5,000 and expired items worth Rs 23,915 were seized and destroyed. Similarly, shopkeepers who did not have price list were also requested to keep price list.

 Information Officer Bharti said that the market has been monitored due to black market and sale of expired items during the festival. He said, "We have been monitoring the market regularly. Now we have started monitoring with a view to Mahashivaratri. We are continuing the monitoring work as there is a possibility of black market and sale of expired products during the festival than other times."
