    Vegetable prices down by 40 per cent in Pune

    The vegetable prices which were skyrocketing during Diwali have now dropped by at least 40 per cent due to a surplus in stock arrival at the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) managed market.

    The retail market price for essentials had seen a steep rise during the past week with citizens complaining of unaffordability and a pinch on the tight daily spending budget.
