Abstract

Onion prices have been a politically volatile issue for state governments, especially since the BJP's electoral debacle in Delhi in 1998. Market intervention by government has thus become a tool to regulate the supply and prices of onions. Recently, during a spike in onion prices, the Andhra Pradesh government used market intervention to stabilise prices.
