Thali Cost in November: With onion prices exceeding Rs 80 per kg, domestic rating agency CRISIL has warned yesterday that there is a possibility of increase in the cost of a normal meal in November. In October, due to high onion prices, the prices of food plates could not come down. In the 15 days after October, the price of onion increased from Rs 34 to Rs 40 per kg. Now this trend is likely to continue in November also.
Know the price of Vegetarian Thali
Crisil said that due to fall in the prices of potatoes and tomatoes, the price of veg thali dropped to Rs 27.5 in the last month i.e. October, which is five percent less than the same period a year ago and one percent less than the month of September. The percentage was less. The agency said that potato prices fell by 21 percent while tomato prices fell by 38 percent, which has improved the overall situation. At present, however, onion rates are continuously increasing, due to which there are chances of seeing an increase in the prices of both veg and non-veg thali in November.
Cost of non-vegetarian thali has also decreased
Crisil said the price of non-vegetarian plate also declined by seven per cent year-on-year to Rs 58.4, and was three per cent less than in September. The price of non-vegetarian thali declined sharply as the price of broiler, which accounts for 50 per cent of the thali cost, declined by an estimated five-seven per cent from a high base.
Benefit of reduction in LPG prices also
The agency said that the government’s decision to reduce the price of LPG cooking gas by Rs 200 to Rs 953 per cylinder also helped the situation. LPG accounts for 14 per cent of the cost of a vegetarian thali and eight per cent of the cost of a non-vegetarian thali.
