Onion price in the domestic market has seen a steep hike just a day after India banned its export. The Indian government banned the export of all varieties of onions yesterday, citing a drop in production in the southern states due to excessive rainfall.
Traders in the domestic market hiked onion price by Rs 15 per kg in the wholesale market today.
According to the Kalimati Fruits and Vegetable Market Development Committee, the price of onion reached Rs 75 per kg today from Rs 60 a kg yesterday in the wholesale market.
