many of them are not reduced the price. more  
Good job and I think you deserve to be in the panel for checking the anti profiteering going on in the name of gst implementation in time. more  
Govt. Directive violators whether Safal or Big Basket, should be heavily penalised to teach them and others to learn non-violation. more  
Ms. Garima , Mattar /peas doesn't grow through the year . December end January the price plummets to Rs. 25 per KG [the whole fresh peas-that is with the pod / shell]. Then it keeps going up from January . The same whole fresh peas is sold at Rs. 80 today . I have seen the same selling for Rs. 190 later in the year. Manufacturer can show the procurement price and fix the price accordingly . So the price rise is justifiable. To a certain extent one can compare the rise of the Petrol price steadily till october .

Not very many are smart like you to note the rising price month after month . For them whether the price id 162, 152 or 149 of one commodity doesn't matter . They pay the total through the card , and may not remember what was the amount swiped for .

I don't buy vegetables and fruits on line at all . This time I Bought 10 KG of fresh peas at Rs25/KG , removed the pods , cleaned & dried them packed in 20 packets distributed to friends after storing some in freezer for the next 3 months when peas will not be available in the market . Now my friends keep sending me drum stick, Brinjal, Ladies fingers.

IN THIS CASE THE PRICE INCREASE IS JUSTIFIABLE AS THE PROCUREMENT PRICE FROM THE FARM KEEPS GOING UP. more  
Garima Sharma ji, you are doing a very good job of publicising the anti-profiteering cases. I appreciate and request all other participants to put in their comments with evidence. I am collecting this evidence to prove that the objective of the National Anti-profiteering Authority is not helping consumers with the refund of the unclaimed amount recovered by the Government of India under the Act, but diverting this amount as something like their revenue. This is not only illegal but also anti Constitution of India. I have filed a case in the court and need such evidence. Your support will be a help to consumers. The Department of Consumers in GoI is of no help. more
