Jump in the prices of fruits and vegetables due to low arrival

Ranchi: The prices of fruits and vegetables have increased once again in the cities of the state including Ranchi and Jamshedpur.

According to a fruit seller in the capital, most of the apples in the city come from Kashmir. Rambandh is a place in Kashmir, where the road is blocked due to the falling of the mountain. Due to this, the fruit trucks are reaching the city late by 12 to 15 days, due to which most of the fruits are rotting in the truck itself.
