Truth behind high price of onions
If you are in Mumbai, you are lucky. Just go up and down the bypass at Virar and you will spot Santosh Petade, a farmer who sells his onions for Rs.12/Kg.
Santosh makes it clear. It is the traders and middle-men who hike the prices, hoard and make lots of money by the price increase in Onions while poor farmers like him get nothing when prices are high. They still sell the Onions at same low prices to the traders.
This is outrageous. If you are a concerned citizen make sure to find farmer mandis near your place by asking around an buy your vegetables from there. Not only will you help the farmers by paying a fair price, you pay much lesser than what you will at the market!
