Prices of both local varieties and imported onions rose by more than Tk 50 per kg in Dhaka markets in just one day.

Onion prices started rising by Tk 10-20 per kg in Dhaka markets on Friday after media reports of India extending the ban on onion export till March 31, 2024 to control the price and supply of onion in the local markets.

However, onion prices rose by more than Tk 50 per kg on Saturday morning.

Visiting kitchen markets in Malibagh, Magbazar, Rampura and Caravan Bazaar in the capital, traders were seen selling local varieties of onions at Tk 180-200 per kg and imported onions at Tk 160-190 per kg.

Since the quality of locally produced onions was not that good, most customers were seen buying imported onions.
