The age-old tradition of Dussehra has continued unabated this year as well. However, traders are saying that this year has seen a decline in consumers compared to last year. 

According to shopkeepers, fafda-jalebi sales are estimated at Rs 4 crore this year. Which was sales of Rs 6-7 crore last year. Security guards have been deployed to ensure compliance with social discrimination in shops amid the Corona epidemic. Peanut oil prices have risen this year. As a result, the price of fafda alone has been increased by Rs 20 per kg.

The taste buds of Rajkot have stayed away from jalebi-ganthiya
. A limited number of people were seen shopping at sweet and farsan shops this morning. Due to the Koro epidemic, traders have made only 50 per cent of fafda-jalebi and sweets. Sweets trader Vasudev Somaiya said that sweets have a special significance on the festival. On the day of Dussehra, people especially buy more jalebi-fafda. But in the Corona epidemic we are sitting with the hope of a 50 percent household. Because people are afraid that eating sweets will cause more sore throat. Colds and coughs are more likely to occur. That is why people are afraid to eat. People have started making knots at home.

In Rajkot, on the occasion of Dussehra, there was a decrease in the number of Jalebi-Fafda households

Bharatbhai, owner of Variya Farsan Mart, which has less than 40 per cent households in Rajkot market , said that this year Dussehra has 50 per cent more households than Corona. 50% of people eat less outside and only eat at home. The business has taken a hit. Vallabhbhai, the owner of Sadguru Dairy Farm, said that this year, 40 to 50 per cent of the households are affected by the Corona epidemic. 40 to 50 percent of all items are household. Rajkot has a tasty people so it doesn't matter if there is no income left. There has also been no change in prices.

Sales of jalebi-fafda declined in Vadodara due to corona

About 60 per cent sales of fafda-jalebi in Vadodara this year, estimated loss of Rs 4 crore
During Dussehra, fafda jalebi worth Rs 5 to 6 crore is consumed in Vadodara every year. However, the Koro epidemic has made it difficult for traders in the city to do business worth even Rs 2 crore. Sales of fafda jalebi are lower this time than last year. So traders seem to be losing Rs 3 to 4 crore. 

Mukeshbhai, a farsan trader from Vadodara, said that the price of fafda is Rs 400 and jalebi is Rs 160 per kg. The price of fafad has gone up as items including oil have become more expensive.  Trader Mohanlal said he has targeted sales of fafda-jalebi due to the Koro epidemic. This time around, Fafda-Jalebi is expected to sell 60 per cent more and lose 40 per cent more than last year.
