There will be no relief from inflation now! There may be an increase in the prices of pulses and edible oil


Experts say that the rains in the months of August and September are very important for Kharif crops. If there is good rain in these two months, the yield of pulses and oilseeds increases. But this year, there has been less rainfall than the average in August, which can affect the production of pulses, oilseeds, paddy and sugarcane.

There is no hope of getting relief from inflation. There may be further increase in the prices of oilseeds and pulses in the coming days. This will further increase the burden of inflation on the general public. It is being said that there has been much less rainfall than the average in August and the same situation will remain till September. This means that the monsoon will remain weak in the next month as well. In such a situation, the yield of pulses and oilseeds will be affected, due to which the production can also be affected. In such a situation, there may be a further increase in the prices of pulses and oilseeds in the coming days.

According to the India Meteorological Department, in August this year, there has been much less rainfall than the average in the last 8 years. But, due to the El Nino factor, there is a possibility of less than average rainfall in the next month as well. However, sowing of pulses and oilseeds has been done across the country. Now after a few days flowers will start coming in the crops. In such a situation, irrigation of crops is required more. But due to lack of water, the production of pulses and oilseeds will be affected, due to which the production may also decline.

Only the northwest part has recorded good rains.

The Meteorological Department says that good rains have been recorded only in the northwest part of the country. These areas have recorded 6 percent more rainfall than last year. At the same time, 7 percent less rainfall has been recorded in Central India, 15 percent less in East North India and 17 percent less than average in South India. In such a situation, the officials of the Meteorological Department say that during the month of August, 35 percent less rainfall has been recorded in the entire country as compared to last year. According to the officials, even if there is more rain than normal in September, the deficit in the month of August cannot be met.

The target of food grain production has been kept at 332 million tonnes.

However, in the crop season 2022-23, there was an increase of 5 percent in the production of food grains in the country. India's food grain stock had reached 330.5 million tonnes. Whereas, this year the target of food grain production has been set at 332 million tonnes.
