MUMBAI (Commoditiescontrol) – Most pulses such as Tur, Urad, Masoor, Chana, Kabuli Chana, White and Green Pea slipped during the week ended Saturday (Dec 9 - 14 ) on dull buying support amid liquidity crunch. While, Moong prices ruled steady to firm on limited millers demand.

Burma Lemon Tur:

Tur Lemon variety of Burma-origin declined by Rs 150 at Rs 4,775/100Kg in Mumbai amid scarce participation by the millers. Demand is dull at prevailing rates due to average quality and cash crunch.

Moreover, demand and sale counters in Tur dal reported sluggish.

Similarly, domestic Tur in bilty trade at Akola also ruled weak by Rs 75 at Rs 5,300-5,325/100Kg amid millers' weak participation.

Arrivals of new Tur in limited quantity was witnessed at Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat. But, moisture content in the crop is higher. Arrivals are expected to hit markets in full swing within a fortnight.

Latur origin new Phatka variety remained weak by Rs 100-150 at Rs 7,900-8,100/100Kg for spot.

As per trade sources, Tur prices likely to get support once arrivals of new Tur gather the pace in domestic market as millers restart crushing operations. Government will also procure as prices of Tur are trading below MSP.

Buying from Wholesaler/retailers in Urad dal witnessed slack as they were getting resale Urad dal at lower rates.
