The food and pharmaceutical sectors have taken notice of the unusual physical, functional, and nutritional qualities of edible oil. In recent years, the price of edible oil has increased dramatically. This paper focuses on examining the impact of the price changes on major edible oils (rapeseed, soybean, palm, and sunflower), which are the main edible oil source in the Indian Agriculture Industry. We examine the scale of the impacts, which are mostly commodity-specific, as well as the causality from first to last consequences on individuals as a result of edible oil prices. Finally, in the conclusion section, we explore how we might address the issue of growing prices.
