The government on Tuesday decided to raise the import limit on arhar dal to 4 lakh tonnes (LT) from the present 2 LT as there were media reports that the prices have gone up in the market. The decision was taken at an inter-ministerial meeting convened by Food and Public Distribution Minister Ram Vilas Paswan.
The meeting, attended by senior officials from food, consumer affairs, agriculture and commerce ministries, also decided to ask state-owned NAFED to offload 2 LT arhar dal in the open market, a statement said. It also decided to import 1.75 LT of pulses from Mozambique under bilateral trade treaty.
