Businesses and shops should produce cash memo for their purchases from the wholesalers and retailers at the shops, it stated. It also appealed to the authorities concerned to print the price lists of essential commodities at the electronics and print media of the state.
With the internet ban and the blockade of the national highways, the import-export and e-commerce has stood still, it maintained. It drew the attention of the government to arrange an alternative.
