New Delhi: Onion prices across the country has gone up almost double over the last two days. Prices across the country are expected to flare up as the demand for

Maharashtra onions has picked up on a shortfall in supplies from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh due to deficit rainfall. In Delhi’s Azadpur market wholesale price of the onion has gone up from Rs 20 a kg to Rs. 30  Maharashtra has for now emerged the primary supplier and will remain so for the next couple of months. “Traders and growers in Maharashtra, who are aware of the weak supply situation in other States, have begun hoarding onion, triggering a price spike,” said a merchant in Delhi.

“Maharashtra still has about half the rabi produce, while fresh supplies have shrunk from Rajasthan too ,” he added.

The surge in prices has led private traders to explore the option of importing onion from countries such as Egypt, Byahatti said. Traders also attribute the price spike to the Madhya Pradesh government’s unprecedented decision in early June to procure about 5 lakh tonnes of onions from farmers at ₹800 per quintal, which took away the surplus.
