Worried govt suspends onion exports till Jan 15 as rates double in retail markets The government on Monday was forced to suspend onion exports till January 15 as retail prices of the vegetable skyrocketed to as much as Rs 70-90 a kg in the Capital. It is feared that the rates may soar to Rs 100 per kg in the near future. A supply crunch and a lack of farsightedness on part of the government has forced Delhiites and the rest of the nation to pay through the nose for a bagful of onions.

Prices of the vegetable have been steadily shooting up in the past few weeks. Onion prices — which were already high at Rs 30-40 a kg — have now doubled to `80-90 a kg in retail markets in the Capital in the past four days. This was mainly because exports were allowed to continue despite a decline in the supply caused by unseasonal rains in the country’s onion-growing regions of Maharashtra, Gujarat and the southern states. Trade sources said onions were being exported to Dubai, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The Centre is acutely aware of the fact that soaring onion prices had brought down one government in the past when consumers gave vent to their anger at the polling booths. So on Monday, it took hasty steps to rein in the rocketing rates. It asked regulating agency Nafed to stop giving fresh clearances to onion exporters.
