In a very drastic move, which was much needed, Govt of India has regulated, and fixed the price of hand sanitizers, and face masks for all shop keepers, brands and customers. As per the new notification, hand sanitizers cannot be sold for more than Rs 100 per 200ML. Whereas 3-ply face masks cannot be sold for more than Rs 10, and 2-ply face masks for Rs 8. These price regulations and the cap have been imposed under the Essential Commodities Act, and in case any shopkeeper attempts to sell hand sanitizers and face masks more than these price limits, then action can be taken against them.
