According to the given data, the prices have been rising steeply. Flour prices have almost doubled in just three years. Tour daal prices showed an almost a two-third hike in prices. Rice rates rose by 50%. Groundnut oil recorded the least rising speed of around 45%. Skyrocketing prices of oil and Tour daal makes it unfit for a poor family’s kitchen budget.
