Onion prices started falling in the wholesale market of Faridpur due to the news of onion import from India, but now it has stopped. In the last week, the price of Paratim onion has decreased from 500 to 600 taka. However, although the price of onion has decreased in the wholesale market, it is being sold at the same price in the retail market. The National Directorate of Consumer Rights informed that all measures including market monitors have been taken to keep the onion market stable.

Last 3 days, onions were sold at the price of Tk 2900 to Tk 3000 per maund in various wholesale markets of Faridpur, the capital of onion. After receiving the news of the government’s import of onion from India, the onion is being sold for Tk 2300 to Tk 2500 today. As a result, government onion import news has reduced to 500 to 600 rupees per onion.

Due to the decrease in the price of onion, the import of onion has also decreased in the wholesale markets. However, traders are blaming middlemen for market manipulation.

Meanwhile, onion prices are low in the wholesale market but are being sold at high prices in the retail market. Onion is being sold at the rate of 70-80 taka per kg in the retail market.

Meanwhile, the assistant director of the National Consumer Rights Directorate. Sohel Sekh said that dishonest traders are being fined to keep the market stable.

Onion has been cultivated in 4 thousand 230 hectares of land in the district this year. From which 5 lakh 53 thousand 58 metric tons of onions will be produced.
