As per market view, prices of Moong likely to get further support by Rs 400-500/100Kg because of diminishing arrivals of Kharif moong and lower crop output.

As per trade sources, government may allocate quota to millers and refiners for moong import in near future due to lower output. However, import of moong in bulk quantity is unlikely due to higher import parity and limited stock in international markets.

Meanwhile, arrivals of new Moong has began in Kenya and arrivals of new moong will start from February end-March at Tanzania-Mozambique.

Canada Green Pea (Mumbai):

The Customs Department is yet to issue clearance to the containers stuck at Mumbai ports, lending support to the pea.
