Retail rates of onions rise again tomatoes remain pricey

Panaji: Yet again, as the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi approaches, onion prices have increased sharply from Rs25 per kg last week, to Rs35-40 per kg. Tomato prices have remained the same at Rs60 per kg in the Panaji municipal market.

Suraj Talaulikar, a vendor told REPORTERS, "There is a shortage in the supply of onions from Belgavi." Another vendor, Mola Dessai blamed the weak rainfall for bad crops which resulted in higher onion prices.

REPORTERS had recently reported that onion prices were expected to rise due to shortage in stocks from suppliers in neighbouring states. Onion prices, which were Rs20 per kg in the last week of July had increased to Rs25 per kg as the stocks with vegetable suppliers were slowly depleting.
