TMSEP236: airfare ceiling, aircraft maintenance, edible oil stocks, flag code

It is trying to bring inflation down and has now ordered edible oil suppliers to cut prices by up to Rs 40 a liter in recent weeks. As commodity prices remain volatile, will players like Adani Wilmar and Patanjali Foods pay the price?
