Following India's victory over New Zealand in the semi-final on Wednesday, India enters the 2023 World Cup final. On November 19 Sunday, the Cricket World Cup finals will be held at the city's Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. As a result, Ahmedabad hotel rates and airline tickets have increased dramatically.
The cost of a hotel room in Ahmedabad on November 18–19 has increased to ten times higher than on any other day. Users of Twitter's predecessor, the X platform, also noted the astounding increase.
Regarding flights, there is a more than 50% increase in tickets for Ahmedabad on November 18 compared to November 16 or 17. For flights coming from Chennai, the rates in normal times are around ₹5,000, but they are now ₹16,000 to ₹25,000.
Netizens differed on whether this was "looting" or just the application of the demand-supply paradigm. According to a report by news agency PTI, the hotel room tariffs for the night of the match have gone up as high as ₹2 lakh in top five-star hotels in the city, while other hotels have also increased their rates by five to seven times.
