Demonetisation effect: Too many vegetables, too little money
Sunil Kumar, a 31-year-old farmer in Tondala village, Kolar district, 85 km east of Bengaluru, lost Rs 300,000 in November when tomato prices crashed due to the demonetisation earlier that month and the excess supply of vegetables. The 110 per cent drop in income from 2016 has come at a time when the weather -- and so the harvest -- was good this year, said Kumar. With money sucked out of the market, there was a tomato glut, and prices crashed by 80 per cent. "A 15-kg crate of tomatoes traded this year between Rs 30 and Rs 50 (instead of Rs 700 at its peak)," said Kumar.
