The Taliban regime in Afghanistan has caused worldwide anxiety. It is also affecting India. Due to the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, the prices of dry fruits in India are starting to increase.
Why is it coming so fast? In fact, the price of dried fruit has increased due to a bottleneck in imports from Afghanistan. Jyoti Gupta, president of the Jammu Dry Fruit Retailers Association, said many dry fruits such as pistachios, almonds, figs and walnuts were imported from Afghanistan. Due to the prevailing situation in Afghanistan, there has been no import for the past 15 days. In such a situation, there is a shortage of dry fruits in the market.

Let us tell you that Afghanistan is one of the countries that imports dry fruits to India. Imports of dry fruits from Afghanistan have increased over the past few years. However, changed circumstances have now led to Taliban rule in Afghanistan. This administration is expected to influence trade relations between India and Afghanistan.
Blasting ahead of festival time: According to experts, if the situation does not improve in Afghanistan, there may be a shortage of dry fruits in the festival feasts. Due to the shortage of dry fruits in markets across the country, prices are likely to increase. Let us tell you that there is a great demand for dry fruits especially during Dussehra and Diwali.
