Onion prices have doubled in Hyderabad in just a few weeks due to a supply-demand mismatch. Delayed monsoon rains are being cited as the reason behind the low supply.

The vegetable that was sold at Rs. 20-25 per kilogram a few weeks ago is currently being sold at Rs. 40-45 in the city.

A few months ago, Hyderabad saw a surge in tomato prices. In July, the prices of tomatoes reached Rs. 200 per kg due to heavy rainfall in Telangana. However, they reduced after a few weeks due to a drastic drop in sales volumes.
