Nagaland Voluntary Consumers’ Organization (NVCO) president,   Kezhokhoto Savi pointed out that in spite of the rate fixed by Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) on essential commodities local vendors are selling goods at high rate.
Speaking to Nagaland Post, he said that the existing rate of local pork is Rs. 220, but local vendors were selling it by Rs.1200 for 3 Kgs. Savi lamented that many were not honoring the directive given by the government.  He further said that the Covid cess on petrol and diesel has increased transportation costs, pushing the local vendors to charge more. President said that the inflation of prices on essential commodities was a serious concern as general public were suffering because of the skyrocketing price.   
Due to the existing ban on import of pigs and cows, sources from KMC said that there was more demand than supply and sellers charge exuberant rate. Sources admitted that the prices of the goods sold by local street vendors could not be streamlined.
