QUEZON CITY, Philippines — Apektado rin ng sama ng panahon ang presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin partikular ang gulay at isda sa mga pamilihan. Isinisisi ng mga tindera sa bagyong Gener ang pagtaas ng presyo ng isda at gulay sa palengke.

Sa Balintawak Market sa Quezon City, tumaas ng P10 hanggang P40 kada kilo ang ilang uri ng gulay kabilang na ang carrots, sayote, patatas, repolyo, kamatis, red bell pepper, beans, pechay baguio at pipino.

Sa presyo naman ng isda, umaabot na sa P140 ang kada kilo ng galunggong, P160 ang salay-salay, P70 ang salmon, P380 ang lapu-lapu, P200 ang dalagang bukid at P100 naman ang kada kilo ng tilapia.

Ayon sa mga nagtitinda ng isda at gulay, ang pagsasara ng ilang kalsada dahil sa pagbaha at landslide ang pangunahing dahilan ng pagtaas ng presyo ng ilang bilihin.

Samantala, bumaba naman simula ngayong araw ang presyo ng sardinas batay sa itinakdang Suggested Retail Price (SRP) ng Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) na P12.80 bawat lata.

Ibinaba ang presyo ng sardinas bunsod ng pagbaba rin sa presyo ng isdang tamban na nagkakahalaga ng P20 hanggang P25 kada kilo.

Inihayag din ng DTI na mahigpit nilang binabantayan ang presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin sa mga lugar na isinailalim sa state of calamity upang matiyak na sumusunod ang mga negosyante sa ipinatutupad na price freeze order. (Ito ang Balita ni Joshua Antonio/Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

DSWD to utilize new facility for SAP payout in QC

Marje Pelayo   •   September 16, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) plans to tap a new payout facility to hasten distribution of the Social Amelioration Program’s second tranche of cash aid to Quezon City residents.

This, after the DSWD reached out to the Quezon City local government to settle issues over delay in the payout of cash subsidies to many of the SAP beneficiaries in the city.

According to the agency, the delay were often caused by lack of information, particularly the contact numbers of beneficiaries.

“Naipaliwanag sa amin na nahihirapan sila sa pamimigay dahil marami sa mga benepisyaryo ay hindi kumpleto ang impormasyon, gaya ng cellphone number (They said they had difficulties in releasing the cash assistance because of incomplete information on the beneficiaries such as cellphone numbers),” said  Mayor Joy Belmonte.

The new payment facility is expected to hasten the payout process as well as provide manual payout delivery services to recipients who do not have contact numbers for wire transfers.

“Pinaplantsa lang nila ang mga detalye para ito’y agad na maisakatuparan at upang mapakinabangan na ng ating mga residente ang SAP na ipinangako sa kanila ng national government (They are ironing out the details before proceeding so that the residents can finally benefit from SAP which the national government promised to them),” she added.

So far, the city’s Social Services Development Department said only 151,192 beneficiaries have received the second tranche of the cash assistance amounting to P8,000 out of the 377, 584 SAP recipients in the city, 

Once settled, the payout will begin in October.

DTI to decide soon on SRP for gadgets

Robie de Guzman   •   September 2, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is set to decide this week on whether to impose suggested retail prices for electronic gadgets like laptop computers and tablets.

DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez said the department’s consumer protection group is still studying the possibility and necessity of placing price caps on gadgets.

Lopez admitted they are reluctant when it comes to imposing price ceilings on gadgets as these have different performance, features and power.

If the study would show the need to impose SRP, the trade chief said this would only apply to the gadget’s basic features.

Lopez also noted that the price range varies depending on the brand.

The demand for gadgets increased after many companies imposed work-from-home schemes for its employees amid the novel coronavirus disease pandemic.
