    Now it will remain in Customs custody until it has no value or use at all.

    Will the govt destroy this stock of turmeric or distribute it amongst the people and earn additional revenue to cover its debt? Hope the authorities take a wise decision.

    Could not buy 100grs of turmeric in the last 7 months. Are the customs doing Poojah with it? This is a case like being angry with the river and not washing the rear.
