Cost of dry fruits in J&K shoots up after Taliban siege in Afghanistan

As soon as terror organization Taliban took over Afghanistan, price of dry fruits in Jammu and Kashmir have shot up due to disruption in imports from the central Asian country.

Jyoti Gupta, the President of the Dry Fruits Retailer Association in Jammu, imports from Afghanistan have been affected for the last 15-20 days.

“It is very difficult to explain to customers the reason for the prices increasing up to Rs 250 per kilogram within 10 days. But we are helpless. To avoid any trouble with the customers, I have revised the rate list according to the situation,” said Gupta.

Gupta further stated that the demand for dry fruits is high in the festive season and also due to the ongoing pandemic.
