Thalinomics: Veg 'thali' more affordable than non-veg ones

Jan 31, 2020 17:15 IST

In India, affordability of vegetarian 'thalis' improved more compared to non-vegetarian 'thalis' in last 13 years, stated the Economic Survey 2019-20. While affordability of vegetarian 'thalis' improved by 29%, non-vegetarian 'thalis' became cheaper by 18% between FY07 and FY20, the survey said. Affordability of 'thalis' is calculated with regard to a day's pay of a worker. The analysis is an attempt to quantify what a common person pays for one-time complete meal across India. This is owing to the sharp downward trend in the prices of vegetables and dal in contrast to the previous trend of increasing prices.
