Indore (Commoditiescontrol) – : Subscribing to repeated pleas of pulse body in the country, the Director General of Foreign Trade of the Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry through its notification No. 27/2015-2020, dated October 26, 2020 has extended import duration of tur in the country up to December 31, 2020. All India Daal Mill Association has hailed the Union government’s move to increase import duration of tur in the country from November 15, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The Association president Suresh Agrawal in a statement issued here on Tuesday while hailing the Union government’s decision said, the decision will give respite to the importers to some extent.

A delegation of All India Daal Mill Association had recently 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.

The Association referring to a recent import order in tur issued by the DGFT on October 13 this month, had 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 had put pulse traders in a fix and causing losses to the pulse industry.

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 was not feasible as according to him, it would take 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 in its letter issued earlier had requested the government to give a five months period to domestic importers to import pulse seeds.
