Market Watch 12

A 13-day bandh in the Terai disrupted markets in Kailali, Banke and Parsa and caused severe supply scarcity and food security distress in various hill and mountain feeder markets including: Ilam, Dadeldhura, Baitadi, Bajhang, Achham, Bajura and Udayapur.

During the month, nearly 40 percent of hill and mountain markets surveyed had insufficient or depleted supply of coarse rice; mountain markets had no maize while only 15 percent of hill markets had sufficient supply of maize; and nationally only 40 percent of markets had sufficient cooking fuel/ kerosene supply.

At a national level the price of most key food commodities remained high during March, but were generally stable compared to February.
