Kolkata (July 01,2023): Vegetable prices have skyrocketed in Kolkata markets due to erratic weather conditions. The prices of essential vegetables, such as tomatoes, brinjal, and potatoes, have doubled in the past few days.

The rise in vegetable prices is due to a number of factors, including a decrease in supply due to the erratic weather. The recent heat wave and drought conditions have affected the production of vegetables in the state. In addition, the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war has also contributed to the rise in vegetable prices. The war has disrupted the global supply chain of vegetables, leading to an increase in prices.


The soaring vegetable prices have put a strain on the budgets of many households in Kolkata. The prices of some vegetables have become so high that they are now out of reach of the poor and middle-class people. The government has taken some steps to control the rising vegetable prices. The state government has imposed a ban on the export of vegetables and has also increased the import of vegetables. However, these measures have not been able to bring down the prices significantly.

The soaring vegetable prices in Kolkata are a cause for concern for many households.
