Price Hike In Kolkata Fish And Vegetable: Due To Local Train Closed….
Local train closed. As a result, the prices of vegetables and grains may go up again. The price of fish is also expected to increase. All in all, the local shutdown is like last time, fearing an increase in the price of goods again. The price of potato and onion has also gone up in some places on Thursday after the train stopped one day. However, traders say that the price is not going to increase now. Those who are taking it are doing injustice. Because, everyone has potatoes and onions in stock. But after two or three days, the train closure will have an effect on the vegetable market. Traders claim that if the train is stopped, the cost of bringing vegetables and fish will increase a lot. The cost of transporting goods to and from the vendor compartment of the train is much higher. As a result the price of things increases.
When the lockdown starts, the people who eat from day to day start earning a living. In this situation, the supply of boiled potato rice will also be a problem for many people. On Thursday, onion was sold at rupees 40 in Mukundpur market and Chandramukhi potato at rupees 23 per kg. The price was 30 rupees, 21 rupees on Wednesday. Traders say the supply of goods will not decrease. Yet the price of everything will go up. Because the cost of bringing everything from fish and vegetables will be much higher than before.
Raw chillies, tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants and everything else can go up in price. And if the demand for cars increases, its rent will also increase. As a result, the rent of the car in which the fish comes will also increase. Which will affect the fish market. Moreover, there is a nuisance of fards. According to the buyers, if the price of raw grains also increases so much, then the food has to be given up.
Traders claim that before, vegetables and fish were brought to the vendor compartment on local trains. Now there is no such way. You have to bring vegetables by small elephant or small truck. As a result, the cost of bringing vegetables will increase a lot. As diesel prices have risen, so has car rental. No trader will pay that cost out of pocket anymore. So we have to increase the price of things. Kamal Dey, president of the West Bengal Vendors Association and a member of the state’s agriculture task force, said, “The cost of importing vegetables will increase as the train closes. Prices are likely to rise everywhere from the open market to the retail market. ”
