Onion prices continue to soar, hit ₹140/kg in some parts

Nov 27, 2019 12:32 IST

Onion prices continue to soar across the country and commodity analysts fear things could get worse if supply doesn't pick up. 

In Kolkata, prices climbed to over Rs 100/kg mark, while markets in the south like Chennai and Bengaluru have seen prices spike to as much as Rs 120 - 140 per kg . Delhi NCR has been dealing with a 100 rupee tick for a few weeks now. 

A fall in supply and heavy rainfall in major onion producing states like Maharashtra and Karnataka have been considered the reason for the sharp increase in price.
