Vegetables become costlier amid supply shortage

New Delhi, May 26, 2022- After LPG cylinder, rising prices of tomatoes and green vegetables are jeopardising the common man’s kitchen budget. In the national capital, tomatoes are being sold for Rs 60-80; while in many cities its prices have reached Rs 100 amid shortfall in supply.

Apart from tomatoes, green vegetables have also gone costlier in comparison to the last week. As per vendors, these prices will increase further in the coming days as they argue “vegetables often become expensive during the rainy season”.
