"There is short supply of many vegetables as crop got damaged due to dust haze and then rains at several places in Punjab and Haryana. The prices are now unlikely to come down for the next couple of weeks as more rains are expected in the region once monsoon arrives in about a week," a trader here said.
Earlier this month, prices of vegetables and other items had soared in the wake of dwindling supplies of farm produce due to farmers' agitation.
