India: Prices of fruits & coconuts soar in Hyderabad
Hyderabad residents really felt the jacked up prices of fruits and items like coconuts on the eve of the Hindu ‘Maha Shivaratri’ festival. The prices of apples, oranges, musk melons, sweet potatoes etcetera have risen sharply, compared to three-four days ago. Water melon and grapes were the exceptions, being sold at normal prices.
Deccanchronicle.com recorded how roadside vendors asked higher prices for their fruits. However, retail supermarkets charged more reasonably. They procured fresh fruits in bulk quantities and even set up stalls for the convenience of the customers.
