"This would help checking the further spike in prices of both the commodities, Bali said."
Shimla, July 9 - Himachal Pradesh has fixed a limit on the quantity of onions and potatoes traders can stock with them to check hoarding, a minister said here Wednesday.

The government has limited the stockholding of onions and potatoes in the state to check hoarding, Food and Civil Supplies Minister G.S. Bali told reporters here.

He said a trader could now store maximum 10 quintal of onions and 20 quintal of potatoes.

This would help checking the further spike in prices of both the commodities, Bali said.

The action came in the wake of the central government's decision to bring onions and potatoes under the purview of the Essential Commodities Act of 1955.
