Firm conditions prevailed at the wholesale market today as most of pulses led by urad and moong surging by up to Rs 600 per quintal on brisk buying by stockists backed by rising demand from retailers despite the government yesterday put imports of urad and moong dal under restricted category.
The government yesterday put imports of urad and moong dal under the restricted category and fixed a cap for its in-bound shipments up to three lakh tonnes.
The move will help in stabilising domestic prices that have fallen below the minimum support level and are hurting farmers.
Traders said increased buying by stockists backed by rising demand from retailers mainly pushed up urad, moong and other pulses prices.
Higher enquiries from dal mills also supported the upmove, they said.
