Fix pulses’ MRP to rein in prices: Traders – Times of India


The country’s apex pulses and grains traders’ organisation, IGPA, has suggested the government fix the maximum retail price (MRP) for pulses to prevent spike in prices and to allow more import of the key kitchen item to tide over any shortage.
It has also suggested that the government increase the import duty to ensure that the cost of imported pulses arriving in India is more than the minimum support price (MSP) offered by the government to protect the interest of farmers.
Vice chairman of India Pulses and Grains Association, Bimal Kothari told reporters that the industry estimates suggest that the overall availability of domestic pulses will be less than the demand and so there is no other option but to import the item.
