The Indian Grocery stores all over US is a big cartel. More than a year ago when India banned Lentils to Bangaladesh only, these greedy guys raised the prices here and made several millions. Now with the Rice shortage and ban from India, they have increased the price of Rice per 20 Lb bag four times. Earlier it was aound $8 and now it is around $30 per bag. This is nothing but day light robbery. In Costco 25 LB Jasmine rice sells for $12.99 and all Indians are lined up there boycotting Indian stores. There is no one to control this greedy cartel and soon we Indians should start a consumer forum and question these guys and take them to court.

It is true. The Indian Grocery stores is run by Gujju Cartel. One insider information says that these merchants each have been making miilions of dollars in profits by inflating the prices of Dhal, Wheat flour and Rice items four to 5 times. Now many people have decided to buy jasmin rice from Costco where you can get 25LB of rice at $19. The only problem with this rice is with regular water proportion (1:2) the rice becomes like a gel. To prevent this we can use 1 and 1/2 times water and add a few drops of oil in water so that the rice is cooked right. We all should boycot buying rice, wheat and Dhal items from these Gujju stores. They are a big cartel and very greedy. Some one should take legal action against price gouging.
