MUMBAI  - India cracked down on price gouging and hoarding of face masks and flu drugs Wednesday as the toll from H1N1 flu climbed to 17.

In Mumbai, India's financial hub, schools and colleges were closed for a week after a mobile phone poll of residents and cinema halls shut for three days. The Bollywood film industry also put off big releases and canceled shoots.

The health ministry asked India's states to set up more screening centres and prod private hospitals to help cope with large numbers of people demanding tests, said Vineet Choudhary, joint secretary of health.

India, he said, had an ample stockpile of flu drug Tamiflu, and was importing more supplies and testing kits. But he warned against hoarders and blackmarketeers.
