    Red Chilli Prices to Rise on Festival Demand, Weak Rains

    The prices of red chilli, India's most exported single spice, are expected to rise again due to higher festive demand and weak rains in the coming weeks. The prices have fallen from ₹250 per kg to around ₹230 per kg in recent weeks due to subdued export demand and accumulation of sufficient inventory. However, the prices are expected to rise again in the coming weeks due to the Dussehra festival season and the late setting in of the southwest monsoon.
