The prices are still soaring high even though the government allowed the import of tomatoes from Iran.
There are no traders selling tomato at the control rate. The local administration yet again miserably failed in implementing the approved rate. As usual, an unrealistic retail rate is being quoted by the local administration of Rs253 per kg compared to Rs193 per kg on Monday.
With the presence of 352 tons of Iranian tomatoes in the market, the prices were supposed to go down. But the prices of tomatoes had skyrocketed, and as being reported the tomatoes are being sold for Rs480 per kilo in some areas.
