MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) – Tur, Chana, Kabuli Chana and Moong prices slipped during the week ended Saturday (Aug 19-23) due to dull millers trade activity as demand for processed pulses was reported slow due to cash crunch. While, Urad, Masoor, White Pea and Green pea stayed steady amid limited trade volume.

Sentiments in pulses were dampened after statement of Food and Consumers Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Friday that the government has a large stock of pulses and oilseeds and also monitoring the rise in prices of pulses and oils during the last few days.

The main reason behind this is the creation of an environment of artificial boom in pulses and oils by the hoarders. The government will take immediate action against hoarders.Government will immediately sell the pulses and oilseeds purchased through NAFED, especially the mustard and Chana in the market, so that the consumers can get pulses and oil at a reasonable price.

However, major pulses were trading much below MSP. Market prices of raw pulses are much lower and MSP is high. On other hand, Government insisting trader to purchase raw pulses at MSP prices to protect growers and get better remuneration. Imports are still continuing, although with restrictions.

Burma Lemon Tur:

Tur Lemon variety of Burma origin declined by Rs 150 to Rs 5,200/100Kg in Mumbai amid lack of millers trade activity as demand and sale counters in processed Tur from wholesale/retail counters are still dull.

Similarly, domestic tur in bilty trade at Akola also traded lower by Rs 100 at Rs 5,875-5,900/100Kg.

The regular supply of pulse from overseas and regular sale by NAFED in open market and supply to state agencies for the conversion is keeping a constant flow of supplies in the market had pressurised the sentiments.

Moreover, sufficient rainfall in last few weeks in Tur belt has raised hopes for better tur crop which also dampened the market sentiments.

Retailers are buying as per immediate requirement only due to liquidity crunch and they see very less possibility of any major rise in price in the immediate future.

As per market sources, Nafed had rejected all lower bids of Tur (kharif-2017)in States of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Gujarat on 23.08.2019 through NeML. Karnataka:10000 MT, Maharashtra:25534.31 MT and Gujarat:18518.99 MT. Lowest bids were around 5,433/100Kg to 5,625/100Kg.

If Nafed sales old procured Tur at lower rates than it will be for negative for prices of Tur Lemon. Millers will be interested in purchase Tur from Nafed due to parity compare to purchase Lemon Tur.

Further imports of Tur from Burma is not viable as millers will be not be interested to import Tur against government had allocated quota to millers of 4 lakh tons to import till 31st October.

Old Tur crop (2018) in Burma is around $665 per ton on CNF basis, but old Tur stock is negligible in Burma. Millers had to shift to import new Tur crop (2019) in Burma which is around $715 per ton on CNF basis. Further depreciation of Rupee from current level will also make import costlier.

Burma Urad:

Burma Urad FAQ old/new variety traded almost unchanged each to Rs 4,500/100Kg and Rs 4,625, respectively at the Mumbai market because of limited millers buying support at higher rates due to cash crunch, supplies from overseas and limited demand for processed Urad at higher levels from consumption centers.

As per market view, prices are likely to get support due to fears of lower output after decline in kharif sowing area and recent rain in Urad producing regions, which are likely to affect standing pulses crops of Urad, resulting in lower yield and degradation in quality. Moreover, further depreciation of Rupee from current level will also make import costlier.
