Potato retail price will come down to Rs 40 a kg

The West Bengal Cold Storage Association official told PTI that wholesale rates of different varieties of potatoes at the cold storage gate had decreased by Rs 5 per kg in the last three days. It is likely to decrease further to around Rs 28. This will help the retail prices of potatoes to go below Rs 40 a kg in local markets. Arrival of potato from Punjab has started, but its quantity is very less. He said that the crop in West Bengal would be ready by the end of the month. In a notice issued by the West Bengal government on November 27, 465 cold storage owners were asked to dispose of their remaining stock by November 30 or else action would be taken against them.

By December 7, about 50 percent of cold storage will be able to empty its stock, while the rest will be empty by mid-December. The official said that at present about 6-8 lakh tonnes (10 per cent) of the potatoes are still lying in cold storage and they will take some more time to evacuate the stock, keeping pace with the potato owners.
