Salyan villagers depend on non-iodised salt


Apr 14, 2018-

People living in remote parts of Bangad Kupinde Municipality-11 in Salyan district are consuming non-iodised salt due to lack of awareness.

Villagers said they use non-iodised salt because they are much cheaper. A kilogram of non-iodised salt can be bought for Rs 15, half the price of iodised salt of the same quantity.

Pashupati Pun of Thapachaur in Bangad Kupinde-11 said they have to walk at least five hours to reach Dhorpipal to buy salt. There is no depot of Salt Trading Corporation in the area. (PR)
