A huge jump has been noticed in the price of vegetables and fruits that are available at Safal stores, as well as those stocked in the retail outlets.
A trader said vegetables and fruits have become expensive due to the continuous rains Delhi-NCR witnessed in the last one week.
Some of the produces got rotten even before they could be sent to the market.
The rates -- usually under control at Safal stores -- have increased as well. Here is a list for comparison:
Rates at Safal stores:
Potato - Rs 18 to 22 per kg
Cabbage - Rs 98 per kg
Brinjal - Rs 45 per kg
Tomato - Rs 54 per kg
Potato - Rs 25-30 per kg
Cabbage - Rs 100 per kg
Brinjal - Rs 80 per kg
Tomato - Rs 50 per kg
Nevertheless, the people looked upset with most of them struggling to deal with the rise in the price.
