The government has also directed the flour mill owners to remove 12 percent bran from government-provided wheat and provide a 20-kgs flour bag to a flour dealer registered with district administration at Rs 786.
District Food Controllers, ration controllers were directed to provide a list of registered flour dealers to the deputy commissioners well in time.
