Onions ' retail prices have been set at Rs 70 per kg, as told by Bipul Kumar Das, additional deputy commissioner for food, civil supply and consumer affairs in Kamrup Metro.
The decision was taken at a meeting on Friday evening to discuss various concerns on onion and potato prices in Guwahati's markets.
“Price of onion is constantly decreasing. The retail price of onion is thus fixed at Rs 70 per kg,” Das said.
“Taking advantage of the situation, some of the retailers are still charging high prices for onion and potato but our team is continuously visiting all the markets and checked the prices,” he added.
In recent times, onion prices skyrocketed with some retailers charging up to Rs 160 per kg.
