Onion and potatoes, part of the famed TOP trilogy (along with tomatoes) are once again in the news.
The yearly ritual of price spikes and drops surprisingly refuses to go this time despite multiple efforts and a litany of measures.
According to data from the department of consumer affairs, onion prices in the wholesale markets of Delhi, as on March 7, were quoted around Rs 1,000 per quintal. This is a drop of around 26 per cent in little over a month. Similarly, wholesale prices of potatoes at Delhi markets were around Rs 800 per quintal, a fall of around 20 per cent in just over a month.
