Govt to sell onions at cheaper prices

In a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the government decided to sell onions at Rs 30 per kg.

The Delhi government has decided to lower the prices of onions at government outlets and mobile vans across the national capital, purportedly in an attempt to stabilise its price in the open market.

In a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the government decided to sell onions at Rs 30 per kg.

It had earlier claimed that the onions were procured at Rs 35 per kg, with transportation and other costs included. The government’s intervention had helped lower the prices of onions in the open market, said Nagendra Sharma, media advisor to the government.

“We will regularly monitor the prices and help bring them down. In October, there will be a glut in the market due to the arrival of kharif crop and the prices will hopefully stabilise,” said a senior government official. The intervention would act as an effective market mechanism to stabilise onion prices and ensure consumer welfare in Delhi, he added.
