dal pricesNew Delhi, Thursday, October 27 – Time for 5-day festival is just to arrive. It is to begin from tomorrow. The event of Dhanteras will be followed by Diwali, which will fall on October 30. At a time when people are leaving stone unturned to celebrate the upcoming festivals in sheer joy with their family and friends, rising rates of variety of vegetables and pulses may annoy them to a certain extent.

As per latest reports, price of chana dal per kg has shot up all of a sudden. Apart from this, prices of vegetables may swell up soon as soon as the celebration period will near, creating a big hole in the consumers’ pocket. Slight rise has lately been noticed in the rates of leafy greens, bottle gourd, ridge gourd, peas and other common vegetables.

Thankfully, tomatoes and potatoes are available at affordable prices. Taking into consideration the previous patterns, most of the buyers are ready to notice unexpected rise in the rates. Last year, Arhar dal price touched INR 200. People were left with no option but to shell out a lion’s share of money to get it in required quantity. The masses expect that perhaps soon they are to bear the brunt of inflation, which may pinch their pockets for another time.
