The surge in prices of essential commodities is burning a hole in consumers’ pockets in Rajasthan. India Today visited an eatery in Jaipur where several young men, under the age of 30, rued the hike in prices of vegetables and other essential commodities.

“The cost of everything has risen. We are finding it tough to manage,” a student told India Today.

“Earlier, I used to manage my food within my monthly food budget of Rs 2500. Now, it goes above 3000,” another student said.

Several people India Today spoke to lamented the fact that the hike in prices of essential commodities, apart from high prices of cooking oil, petrol and diesel, have adversely affected their daily, weekly and monthly budgets.

Apart from massive unemployment, lakhs of youths have been at the receiving end of price rises as well.

“My family wonders why we are not able to manage? It has become difficult to live outside homes in Jaipur. We may have to return to our homes,” another student said.

“The prices of everything including cooking gas has gone up. It has become difficult to manage. If we increase the price of items on our menus, then the customers might stop coming,” Suresh, a restaurant owner said.
