Govt lifts export ban on tur dal, urad, moong with immediate effect.

The government lifted the ban on exports of tur dal, urad, and moong with immediate effect. The export of these pulses allowed only after registration of contracts with Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority. The move came in the wake of industry demand to support the falling prices in key markets of the country. Prices of most of the pulses hovered near and mostly below the minimum support levels in the country. The government had earlier capped the import of pulses to boost the domestic prices. The government had capped import of tur at 200,000 tonne per annum and urad and moong at 300,000 tonne each per year.
