Government removes export curbs on all varieties of pulses

The government has removed export curbs on all varieties of pulses. This step has been taken in order to ensure that farmers get remunerative prices, as domestic rates have crashed below Minimum Support Price (MSP) in view of record production. India produced a record 22.95 million tonnes (MT) of pulses in the 2016-17 crop year (July-June) and the government is targeting to repeat this performance this year.

In September this year, the government had lifted ban on export of tur, urad and moong dal. However, exports of these varieties of pulses were allowed after taking permission from agriculture export promotion body APEDA.

The government has fixed a target of 22.90 MT of pulses production for the year 2017-18. The annual demand is 25 MT.
