Nashik have not dispatched

Nashik have not dispatched the produce to other parts of the country after they failed to get railway rakes at Nashik, Lasalgaon, Manmad, Niphad and Kherwadi stations as per their demand. This, they claimed, had resulted in a huge stock with the traders, who were not making any fresh purchases. The produce reaching the market is not getting sold or getting low price from traders, who still have stock to clear. Nashik traders send onions to New Delhi, Bihar and other states in North India, West Bengal, and the North East states. They prefer to transport by rail rather than road as it is cost effective and quick. While it costs Rs 5 per kg to transport onions by road, it costs only Rs 2.5 per kg by the Railways.
