The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living (KPDN) in a statement informed that as many as 30 types of goods are controlled under this scheme.

However, in Perak as much 27 types of goods are involved.

“This includes six types of goods from the chicken and egg category under the Maximum Price Determination of Chicken and Chicken Eggs which is effective since 5 February 2022.
