In Gangotri Dham in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, the price of a kilo of tomatoes has gone up to Rs 250. Tomato price in Yamunotri region is in the range of 200-250 rupees. Meanwhile, the price of tomatoes in Uttarkashi is at the level of Rs 180-200. Tomato prices in the country’s vegetable market have been raised due to crop damage in some areas where tomatoes were grown last month and crop damage in other areas due to lack of rain in the summer.
Meanwhile, among the metro cities of the country, Kolkata records the highest price of tomatoes. The retail price of tomatoes is Rs 152 per kg. A kilo of tomato costs Rs 120 in Delhi, Rs 117 in Chennai and Rs 108 in Mumbai.
With this, the price of food from the hotel has also increased. From October 2022, the prices of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals showed a downward trend. But in the months of May and June, the increase in hotel food prices is evident. A report by market analysis agency Crisil points out that the rise in tomato prices has also led to the rise in food prices. Along with this, the high price of some pulses is also a negative factor.
