Pricing of Tomato impacting household budgets

Many of you participated in the recent survey on tomato prices and below is the report:

Tomato Prices and Impact on Household Budget

We need the Central Govt and State Government to ensure more supply and that there is no hoarding/profiteering. If the issue impacts you, do share the above link with your whatsapp groups as well as others who may be interested. It is important that both short term and long term action is taken on this so it doesn't become an issue every few months.

As always, do share your inputs on the subject! more

Rains badly effected Veg Produce resulting Price Hike. Unplanned Cultivation results both Price Hike and Wasteful Produce more  
I was reading one case. A farmer was selling his Onions at 1/2 Rupees per Kilo. The Buyer sold them to Big Shops at 20 Rupees per Kilo. And then Big Shops were selling to the Consumer at 40 Rupees per Kilo. What ever may be Transportation Cost and other costs, You see the Margin of Profit by Middle Man and Big Shops. Unless this is corrected, both Kisan and Consumer will always be at loss. More over these Middle Men are not Paying any Tax to the Govt and claim them to be Agriculturist. That is why time has come that Agriculture Income should come under IT net. more  
Mediators pocketing multiplied Profits. This is Why Farm Laws more  
Eliminate the middle man in sale of farm products, stop price fixing by the government and you will see the prices come down like any free market economy. Stop spending time and taxpayers money by telling government to fix this. You live in a free country, NOT China or USSR to have government price fixing. more  
In Chennai, today, bindi (ladies finger) was selling at 140 Rs, snake gourd (pudalankai) at 110 Rs and brinjal at 95 Rs per kilogram. All our Tamil media which went tom tom about onion prices a year ago are keeping quiet. This is their patrika dharma. Long live our wonderful (biased) press. more  
Surprising. In Chandigarh, Brinjal price
is Rs.30/-, Bhindi Rs.50/-, Bottle Guard
Rs.30/-. If the situation is so torturous
in Chennai, you should shift to Chandigarh
and go back when the prices of veges cool
down to reasonable level. more  
Farmers of one State are asking for free market and from other agitating for MSP irrespective of requirement. Let the State governments manage the price fixing and ensuring reasonable price for all farm produce. Stock limits should also be fixed the States as Agriculture is a State subject. more  
We could be correct. But states have to sell the produce to the poor,with money from who ever give.
India should remain a poor country, while they manage more
