Increase Import Duration of Tur Till Jan 31 Next Year: Pulse Body To Govt

Indore (Commoditiescontrol) – : A delegation of All India Dal Mill Association on Wednesday met Union Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar seeking to increase import duration of tur imports in the country till January 31 next year. The Association in its previous letter to the Prime Minister had earlier demanded an increase in the duration of pulse seeds in the country till March 31 next year.

In a statement issued here, the All India Dal Mill Association referring to recent import order in tur as issued by the DGFT on October 13 this month, has questioned the government’s move to allow import of tur in the country till November 15 this year.

The Association president Suresh Agrawal said frequent changes in import notifications by the government has put pulse traders in a predicament and causing losses to the pulse industry. Agrawal said the DGFT in its order dated April 20, 2020 had invited applications from traders for import of 4 lakh metric tons of tur. The government was supposed to renew import licenses in June 2020 but the same was not done and now the DGFT in its fresh order dated October 13, 2020 has allowed import of tur in the country till November 15, 2020.

Agrawal said importing tur within a span of merely 32 days is not feasible as it takes at least 3-4 months to the traders from obtaining import licenses to giving import orders to the arrival of imported crops in India. He feared that exporters in Myanmar and Tanzania will derive undue benefits from this short import duration and accordingly, would hike prices of their crops. This would make imports costlier and would lead to a hike in prices of tur in the domestic market. The Association president said that after issuing import notification, the government should at least give a five months period to domestic importers to import pulse seeds.
