Silk sarees degrade due to lower sales in the pandemic.

Bangalore: Expensive silk sarees have piled up in stores for a year in  the lock down. This has led to the deteriorated quality and color of these sarees. Saree shop owners said that sarees worth rupees Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 12,000 are being sold at half price leading to a loss to the stores around the city.
