Prices of most of vegetables like cabbage, chilly, tomato, cauliflower, brinjal have seen a price rise between 80-100% in retail markets of Guwahati.

There are huge differences between prices of retail and wholesale markets due to illegal syndicate.
As for the gap between the wholesale and retail prices, it is as much as over 25 rupees in tomato and over 40 rupees for brinjal.
