And those affected are a whole community of small tea farmers -a distinguishing feature of the blue mountains where small players continue to play a significant role in tea cultivation as well as in production. The price for green leaf paid by the tea production factories to growers fell from Rs 18 a kg in 1998-99 to Rs 10.30 and further to Rs 7.7 by 2000. It further fell to Rs 5 soon. In the last decade, the price has fluctuated and now stands at Rs 11.
