New Delhi, Dated 17th July 2022
Economically impoverished Sri Lanka is getting hit by inflation.
The situation is such that the prices of many things have increased unimaginably and these things have thus become beyond the reach of people. As the price of apple has reached 1600 rupees per kg.
The prices of all food and drink items are increasing in this country. Due to shortage of money, there is also a shortage in the country and it is not possible for all the people to buy whatever is left. In January, apples were sold at Rs 350 per kg and today they are priced at Rs 1600.
The price of one kg of guava has increased from Rs 300 to Rs 600. The season of mango is going on but the price of one kg of mango is 600 rupees.
Bananas used to be available in Sri Lanka for Rs 50 to Rs 100 per dozen and today it costs Rs 300.
In January, the price of a kilo of oranges was Rs 350, which has now increased to Rs 1500. The price of a coconut has increased from 50 to 70 rupees in January to 150 rupees.
Sri Lanka has a shortage of many items. These are items that are imported from abroad but Sri Lanka is not in a position to import these items as it has little foreign exchange. The effect of which is visible on the market.
In Sri Lanka, Nutrella is being sold at Rs 4500 per kg, cashews at Rs 6000 per kg, butter at Rs 1300 per 100 grams, cheese at Rs 1500 per 100 grams. The price of other goods has also gone up a lot.
