MUMBAI (Commodities control) – Most pulses, such as Tur, Urad, Masoor, Chana and Kabuli Chana moved higher for the week ended 3rd April, 2021 amid fresh buying activity at lower rates. On the other hand, Moong and White Pea traded flat on limited trade.

However, demand and sale counters in processed pulses reported thin activity. The prices have remained range bound during the past month due to lower demand from consumers. Second wave of corona virus has affected the consumption.

The latest lockdown restrictions -- Government imposing night curfew and restrictions on opening of hotels, restaurants, ban on large gatherings, events, programmes, celebrations and also not allowing more than 50 people to attend marriages could prove detrimental to pulses demand.

However, production of pulses has beenlower this year due to unfavourable climatic conditions.
The current situation might be temporary and with passage of time, the demand for pulses would be back.

Burma Lemon Tur:

Tur Lemon variety of Burma-origin gained Rs 150 to Rs 6,400/100Kg in Mumbai, due to selected mills’ buying on immediate requirement for crushing.

Moreover, most of the mandis in key regions were closed this week due to Holi and FY ending holiday. It affected the availability of pulses in the spot markets leading to tightness.

Similarly, domestic variety of Tur was also up by Rs 125 to Rs 7,075-7,100/100Kg in bilty trade at benchmark market of Akola.

Meanwhile, millers were facing disparity as demand and sale counter in Tur dal reported thin participation. However, monthly dal counter expected in coming days.

As on March 31, 2021, NAFED has successfully procured 10961.61 MT of Tur at Minimum Support Price of Rs 6,000 in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

As per market sources, Tur prices are likely to get support at lower rates as seller were inactive. Fundamentals of Tur are strong due to lower yields, lesser old procured stock with government. Although, overseas imports will arrive at regular intervals as the government already issued a total of 6 lakh tonnes quota.

Burma Urad:

Prices of Burma Urad FAQ variety gained Rs 150 at Rs 7,150/100Kg in Mumbai, amid selected millers' trade at lower rates on immediate requirement for crushing despite overseas supplies at Chennai.

However, offtake in processed Urad was limited from wholesale and retail counters.

Similarly, Burma Urad SQ variety in Chennai firmed up by Rs 125 at Rs 7,800/100Kg, whileFAQ variety remained flat at Rs 7,200.

Burma Urad FAQ-SQ varieties traded in the range of $735-$740 per ton & $850-$855, respectively on CNF basis for Chennai against delivery before 30th April. Good parity in import was seen. Ready stock of imported Urad at Chennai is around 1500-1700 containers.

Centre extends the last date for import of 1.5 Lakh MT of Urad for the fiscal year 2020-21, from 31st March, 2021 to 30th April.


As per market sources, Urad prices are likely to get support of Rs 200-300/100Kg for short term period during 1st week of April due to monthly dal counter expected. Moreover, 30-40% of new Urad arrivals in Andhra Pradesh has been already used for consumption and 30-40% will be in process and rest 20% will be holding for stock. But, upcoming supply of summer crop from April-May in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat are likely to keep prices under check. But, acreage of summer crop Urad will be less as acreage is expected to shift to Moong.

Chana Kantewala (Indore):

Chana prices moved up by Rs 75 at Rs 5,050/100Kg in Indore due to mill buying activity on immediate requirement for crushing and negligible arrivals as major markets this week were closed due to Holi and FY end holidays.

Meanwhile, demand for Chana dal-besan remains thin.

Second wave of corona virus has adverselyaffected the consumption of Chana dal in particular. Major consumption of Chana dal or besan at roadside eateries, in catering industry and hospitality has been lost due to closure or limited attendance leading to write off of demand.

Marketmen will keep a close watch on Chana arrivals at producing centres in coming week.

However, Corporates and stockist are actively purchasing Chana and Pace of procurement by government agency at MSP is likely to improve in coming days, supporting the prices. Moreover, Nafed has stopped selling the old procured stock.

As on March 31, 2021, NAFED has procured 124130.84 MT of Chana at MSP of Rs 5,100 in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Similarly, Tanzania-origin Chana in Mumbai also moved higher by Rs 25-50 at Rs 4,650-4,700/100Kg amid mill buying activity.

Imported Masoor (Mumbai):

Canada crimson variety Masoor along with Australia Masoor in Mumbai continued to trade higher by Rs 100-125 each at Rs 5,825-5,900/100Kg and Rs 6,000, respectively on improved mills’ buying support and depleting stock of imported Masoor.

White Pea (Kanpur):

New White Pea prices remained nearly unchanged at Rs 4,950/100Kg (dal quality) and Rs 5,125 (40% filter quality) at Kanpur market, due to limited buying as major markets this week were closed due to Holi and FY end holiday.

As per Kanpur based trader, prices of White Pea is likely to get support due to negligible carryover stock. Millers-traders will actively purchase as the pipeline is empty. Stockiest activity and bulk buying from big companies may be witnessed at lower rates in the coming days.

Moreover, imported White pea stock is also negligible after India banned import of the yellow peas. Customs department has not released the imported pulses yet, as the release will contradict government’s existing policy.
