Can any one please tell me what かけられる means in the following sentence and if it has any corresponding Kanji?

年明けの築地市場の初競りにかけられるのでしょうか。

「年明{としあ}けの築地市場{つきじしじょう}の初競{はつぜ}りにかけられるのでしょうか。」

「かけられる」 here means "to be put (up for auction)".

You might want to remember the set phrase 「競{せ}りにかける」("to put up for auction"). Its passive voice form is 「競りにかけられる」.

「かける」 for this meaning is most often written in kana. If you must use kanji for a good reason (though I have no idea what kind of reason that would be), it would be 「掛ける」.

"I wonder if it is going to be put up for the first auction of the year at the Tsukiji Market."
