vege newNew Delhi, Tuesday, October 21 – Soaring rates of vegetables and fruits disturbed the kitchen budget for several days, especially when tomato alone cost around Rs. 70 to Rs. 80 per kilo last month due to poor supply of the common staple from different states. During Navratri and Dussehra also, higher prices of many items restricted populace not to overspend. In view of the fact that a number of veggies were priced above Rs 60 to Rs 70 per kilo, it was not possible for the general public to meet daily requirement of the family.

In contrast, scenario is slightly changed in the city markets from past few days. Rates of onions, potato, tomato, zucchini, cucumber, brinjal, pointed gourd, bottle gourd and leafy vegetable have trimmed down a little bit. Despite the fact that the reduction might not seem too big to several buyers, yet it is a sign that situation might improve a lot more in the next few days.

Though observing mild decrease in the cost of various crops, people will have to shell out extra money to get a kilo of peas, which is being sold at the price of Rs 120 to Rs. 130. Price of garlic is up as well. However, it is not supposed to create any sort of trouble for the reason that its consumption is not as high as of the other stuffs.

Buyers make sure they buy fruits in good quantity since costs of banana, apple, pears, oranges and pineapple have plunged to some extent. This may go up on Diwali thanks to huge demand but likely to be reasonable priced after that. If recent reports from close sources are to be taken into consideration then vendors will get desired supply of kitchen staples which will restrict prices from going up.
