The price of onions has shot up by 70 per cent. In shops, onions at present cost Rs. 40 a kg. The rise in onion prices at source, i.e. at Nasik and Alas villages in Maharashtra, has reflected all over the country. Also, onions have been grown in a reduced area in Karnataka. Five lakh tonnes less onions were imported this year. In Hyderabad, onion is being sold in special counters in 36 colonies.
