Not only India, but its neighboring country Bangladesh is also troubled by the onion prices. In India, onions are being sold for Rs 70-80 per kg, while in Bangladesh its prices have set new records.
Onions in Bangladesh are selling around 240 taka kg i.e. around 200 rupees kg in Indian currency. Whereas in Bangladesh, the price of onion used to be 30 to 40 taka i.e. 25 to 35 rupees.
Due to increased prices, people have also reduced the use of onion. After all, what is the reason behind the rising prices of onion in Bangladesh
Actually, Bangladesh gets about 40 percent of its onions from other countries. Of this, 95 percent of the onion is exported from India alone. In such a situation, when India stopped sending onions to Bangladesh, its direct impact was seen on the onion stock of Bangladesh.
