Close to 20 private shops have also set up their stalls, said S Vasantha Kumar, managing director of PAPSCO. He added that the commodities are being sold at a no profit, no loss basis and at reasonable prices.

PAPSCO has set up such bazaars at Kannikovil, Ariyankuppam, Bahour, Maducarai, Embalam, Thirukkanur, Madagadipet, and Villianur.
