Buying Fish in Silchar market became very costly affair. For example Prawn is being sold at anything between Rs 300–400, climbing perch at Rs 400, rohu at Rs 700–800, clawn knifefish at Rs 800–1000, gangetic mystus at Rs 1,200.
Why there is rise in prices of fish only in silchar? In other cities like Kolkata, Agartala, Delhi, Bangalore prices are very much lower.
Do you think Silchar Municipal Board should regulate the prices of fish which is the main food item of Bengali people?
