tomatoNew Delhi, Monday, July 14 – Customers are already facing the brunt of high rates of pulses, sugar, rice, onions, potato and other domestic goods. Instead of getting a mild breather from inflation, they are left with no option other than to shell out something extra for tomato as well.

The veggie that was sold at the rate of Rs 25 to Rs 35 per kilogram a few days ago in the retail market of the national capital is now being sold somewhere around Rs 55 per kg on Saturday and Sunday. An all of sudden rise is attributed to less stock of the tomato in the market. The sharp increase of up to Rs 20 per kg is enough to disturb household budgets. Many joint families are hit hard by the augment and facing the trouble to an unimaginable extent. Despite cutting down on the quantity, they aren’t able to meet their need as a kilo of tomato is not enough to enhance the taste of several dishes for a number of days.

Hike in zucchini, lady finger, bottle gourd, bitter gourd, winter squash etc. have also added to their worries. Though most of these vegetables do not require tomato as a key element, however, higher prices of the same do not allow customers to buy these vegetables in required amount.

As per a few experts, situation may come into control the moment monsoon hits the farm lands and improves production later on. A better output can only meet the rising demand of the consumers. Fresh stock of tomato is likely to be available in the wholesale and retail market soon. But till then inflation will keep on pinching customers’ pocket.
