However, an official of National Egg Coordination Committee (NECC) said the price has now gone down as the supply from outside Bengal has increased.

The Times of India reports that on the other hand, the consumption has gone down since the price is comparatively on the higher side. Middlemen, too, were to be blamed for the price rise, he added.
