Responding to an INS query on inflation of essential commodities including edible oils and pulses, Union Consumer Affairs Secretary Leena Nandan said it was being monitored regularly and necessary steps were being taken to control inflation. He said import quotas have been imposed to increase the availability of pulses in the country and efforts are being made to increase domestic production of edible oils.
Significantly, the production of fruits and vegetables, including food grains, increased in the country during the Corona period. Production of food grains and horticultural crops is estimated at record levels. Nevertheless, the increase in the price of food and beverage items led to a decline in the budget of the average housewife.
As far as vegetables are concerned, the arrival of vegetables in the summer season after the winter season is increasing, the prices are falling, but the demand for fruits has increased due to warming in the midst of increasing corona outbreak, but the arrival is very low.
However, pulses are less likely to get rid of inflation. Suresh Agarwal, president of the All India Pulses Mills Association, said demand for pulses had increased, while the difficulty in importing was not over. Pulses experts point out that consumption of pulses increases when vegetables are expensive.
Market prices have declined due to internal strength of wheat, but flour prices have not. Neetu Gupta, a resident of Delhi’s Jamuna Bihar, says rice that used to cost Rs 500 to Rs 0 per kg is now Rs 60 per kg and wheat flour, which used to be Rs 250 per kg, is now Rs 30-35 per kg. He said it has become difficult to budget for the kitchen because of all the expensive things in the kitchen.
