It is generally seen there is surplus production of wheat in States like Punjab and Haryana but this surplus produce is not swiftly transferred to other States. Similarly, the bumper product of apples in Himachal Pradesh does not reach other States.
Another reason for the scarcity of commodities in the market even during times of profusion is the tendency of wholesalers and capitalists to hoard the products and create a scarcity in the market.
There are several other reasons for price rise. Some of such reasons are back market, corruption, faulty taxation system, wastage, expenditure on luxuries, bloated bureaucracy drawing heavy salaries, excessive profit charged by manufacturers on their products, etc.
In order to check price rise, effective steps should be taken and at the same time excessive circulation of money should also be checked. It should be ensured that imports are decreased and at the same time exports are increased.
