Two-day strike: Bharat Bandh losses to Indian economy may mount to Rs 26,000 cr, says Assocham

The situation in the vegetable mandis will be worse tomorrow and it is feared that the prices of fresh eatable items like vegetables, milk, bread, eggs and meat may increase hitting the common-man who is already reeling under inflation.

The Assocham had earlier estimated the national loss figures based on the daily erosion of about 30-40 per cent to the country's Gross Domestic Production (GDP) for two days.

It expressed fear that the disruption may go up to 50 per cent.
