There has been no relief in the price of green vegetables yet. When the tomatoes are slightly reduced, the onions start to cry. Potatoes are still playing between 40 and 60.

Note: – The difference in price of a product in different centers is partly due to the difference in its variety.
Taking immediate action to prevent onion prices from rising, the government immediately banned the export of all onion varieties. Protests are going on in Maharashtra over the central government’s complete ban on onion exports. Nevertheless, prices are rising rapidly. As surprising as the rise in tomato prices is, heavy rains in the south and west of the country have affected tomato supplies.
