Onion prices hit the sky in UP

Lucknow: After tomatoes, it is now onions that are burning a hole in the pockets of consumers in the festive season.

The prices of onions in the retail market have doubled in the past one week, going from Rs 30-35 per kg to Rs 60-80 per kg.

This is the second time in the last four months that onion prices are spiralling after August, when the staple had crossed Rs 100 mark. It has further put strain on the kitchen budget following the steep hike in tomato prices just a few months ago.

This increase in onion prices is making it tough for families and restaurants as they prepare for the upcoming festivities.
