In fact, due to heavy rains, the general public has once again felt the tide of inflation. Prices of potatoes, onions and tomatoes have started touching the sky. Tomato has completed a century in the field of inflation in the retail market. Prices of tomatoes have touched Rs 130 in most parts of the country. While onions have touched Rs 90 and potatoes have touched Rs 80. These figures have been taken from the website of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs.

Due to heavy rains, vegetables and fruits are spoiling in many places and vegetables are not delivered in many places due to traffic jams. Due to which the prices of vegetables are increasing.

Not only this, the price of potato and onion is also around Rs 80-90. In monsoon-hit cities, the prices of tomatoes have crossed Rs 100.

How much more expensive will vegetables become now?

The Meteorological Department estimates that rainfall in July is likely to be above normal. This is more than 106% of the long-term average. However, due to the low rainfall so far and a heatwave that affected much of the country in June, prices of many perishable goods have continued to rise as their arrivals to the market have decreased, with the main impact being tomatoes, onions and potatoes. Prices of the main vegetables have been seen to rise.

Retail prices of onion and potato in Mumbai are currently double what they were a year ago, while tomato prices have increased by nearly 60%. Onion is currently being sold at a price of over Rs 50 per kg, while tomato has crossed Rs 80 per kg in Mumbai.
