Tomato Prices rise by Rs. 62 Per KG

New Delhi,November 18: After the rising of onion prices, tomato prices in the national capital have gone up by about 50 percent in the last one month to Rs. 62 per kg, due to shortage of supplies.

According to official sources, in Delhi, tomatoes were sold at Rs. 41 per kg a month ago which has jumped to Rs. 62 per kg.

Similarly, the average prices of tomato across all major centres have also zoomed to Rs. 42.5 per kg from Rs. 30 per kg a month ago.

However, according to traders at Azadpur Mandi, wholesale prices of tomato have started to decline from last two days with rise in supplies.

"Tomato supplies have come down sharply in the last week or so due to vacation during the festive season and as a result prices have shot up in the market," said Subhash Chuk, a tomato trader at Azadpur mandi.

Meanwhile, the retail prices of onion in the national capital has come down to Rs. 43 per kg from Rs. 57 per kg on account of increase in supplies.

Traders are of the view that the prices of onion may further come down as the new crop has started entering the market.
