Retail prices high even after fall in edible oil prices
Sources claimed that there has been a fall in the wholesale price of edible oilseeds. When asked why common consumers are getting mustard oil at Rs 190-210 per liter or more despite the fall, sources said the wholesale price has come down. The wholesalers are supplying the retail companies at the rate of Rs 152 a liter (including surcharge) for further supply. But retail companies are increasing this price arbitrarily, which the government should think about curbing. He said that if the people involved in the raids roam the market and check the Maximum Retail Price (MRP) of the retailing companies, then the problem will start getting resolved. But it will be difficult to handle the rising inflation if the retailing companies go beyond a limit to collect arbitrary money. Sources said that according to the wholesale price, mustard oil should be available in retail at a maximum of Rs 158-165 a liter and soybean oil a maximum of Rs 170-172 a liter. The government will have to make as much effort as possible to supply edible oil to the consumers at this price. Due to lack of demand in the market, the prices of CPO and Palmolein oil closed with a fall.
