No Need for Rationing Essential Goods No Need for Rationing Essential Goods

The Industries Ministry has no plan for now to distribute essential goods via electronic coupons, the deputy minister for domestic trade said. 
“As there is no shortage of [essential] goods in the market and Iran is self-reliant with regard to some basic items, rationing is not advisable,” Abbas Ghobadi told reporters Saturday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

“Should we reach a point when quotas for some goods are necessary, we can restart the coupon system in one month.”
