Kolkata (July 06,2023) : The price of chillies has been soaring in Kolkata in recent days, hitting the middle-class hard. On Wednesday, chilli was being sold for as much as ₹200-250 per kg in the retail market, up from ₹100-120 per kg just a few days ago.

The sharp rise in prices is being attributed to a number of factors, including a decrease in supply and an increase in demand. The supply of chillies has been hit by a number of factors, including a poor monsoon and a pest infestation. At the same time, demand for chillies has been rising due to the festive season. The high prices of chillies are causing a lot of hardship for the middle-class, who rely on the spice for cooking. Many people are now cutting back on their use of chillies, or are substituting them with other spices. The government has taken some steps to try to control the rising prices of chillies, such as imposing a stock limit on traders. However, these measures have so far had little effect.

The high prices of chillies are a major concern for the government, as they could have a negative impact on the overall economy. The government is likely to take further measures to try to bring down the prices of chillies in the coming days.
