Rates increased by 7 percent after the ban

After the ban on wheat prices in the month of May, there was an increase of about 7 percent in retail prices. Apart from this, there has been an increase of about 4 to 5 percent in the MSP price. The decision to ban the export of wheat was taken by the Central Government to promote domestic supply.
Edible oil will also be cheaper
