As per market sources, recent rise in last few days was speculative in Chennai as some cartel is active in the market to push the prices higher as they were holding stock at lower rates.

However, delay in further imports, limited stock of imported Urad with the progress of the monsoon will support the prices at lower rates.

Chana Kantewala (Indore):

New Chana traded weak by Rs 150-175 at Rs 4,500-4,525/100Kg in Indore amid thin millers buying support as per quality and increased arrivals.

Similarly, Australia origin Chana in ready business at Mumbai and Mundra port fell by Rs 50 each at Rs 4,650/100kg, respectively amid slack trade activity, following weak cues from domestic markets and also availability of very limited stock.

In forward business, Russia Kabuli Chickpea offered at $415 and Burma FAQ V7 at $650 per ton in container on CNF basis JNPT for ready shipment.

However, crushing in Chana/Kabuli Chana had increased due to cheaper prices and easy availability compared to White Pea. Flour millers were also active in purchasing chana as they were facing difficulty in getting other options, such as Tevda/Batri etc.

As per market talk, prices of chana were almost trading around or above MSP of Rs 4,620/100Kg. Chana prices likely to get support due to cheaper pulses compare to other pulses. Moreover, output of chana is likely to be lower by about 10-15 per cent this season in the country, according to trade estimates. Lower import quota of White Pea for this year may also support chana prices.

Prices may get support at lower rates as procurement is going by government and might not liquidate old balance stock in the market.
