Govt. says over 98,000 MT pulses seized so far
In the endeavour to make pulses available at reasonable prices, several States in the country continued their enforcement action against hoarding and black-marketing. Over 15,000 MTs of pulses have been seized on 28.10.2015, taking the total quantity of pulses seized in de-hoarding operations to over 98,000 MTs.
At the same time States continued with the arrangements to sell pulses at reasonable rates ranging between Rs.120-140/kg through various retail distribution networks available in the respective States.
These two steps have had a salutary effect in improving the supply situation as well as in cooling down the prices of pulses both in the retail and wholesale markets.
