New Delhi: The retail price of tomatoes shot up to Rs 80 per kilogram in the national capital on Wednesday. This price rise is due to supply disruption caused in the wake of heavy rains in key tomato growing states including Karnataka.
Earlier this, the price of onions registered a steep rise. However, it has now come down marginally compared to last week with onions currently being sold at Rs 60 per kg in Delhi.
Mother Dairy’s Safal outlets are selling tomatoes at Rs 58 per kg, while the same quantity is being sold at Rs 60-80 by local vendors (depending on the quality and locality) in Delhi.
