The Centre has asked the State Governments to crack down on traders hoarding onions, create buffer stocks and distribute imported edible bulb at a reasonable rate in order to provide relief to the common man from soaring prices.

Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba yesterday chaired a meeting of the Committee of Secretaries to review the issue of rising onion prices across the country.

In a video conference with the Chief Secretaries of 11 major onion producing states, Mr Gauba was briefed about the various steps being taken by them to control onion prices.
