Government troubled by the rising prices of Arhar-Urad, preparing to sell through Nafed-Central Bhandar

Arhar-Urad Dal Price Hike: Due to the inflation of wheat and flour, the roti of the plate has become expensive. Now pulses have also become expensive along with bread. In the recent months, a jump is being seen in the prices of Arhar Dal. In the last one month, there has been a jump of more than Rs 10 in the prices of Arhar Dal. Not only arhar dal but also the prices of urad dal have increased.

According to the data of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, on January 2, 2023, the price of tur dal in the capital was Rs 111 per kg, which has increased to Rs 116.77 per kg on April 18. Whereas in the financial capital Mumbai, tur dal was available at Rs 125 per kg on January 2, which is available at Rs 141 per kg on April 18. Not only arhar dal, but the prices of urad are also seeing a rise. On January 2, 2023, Urad was available in Mumbai for Rs.125 per kg, which is available on April 18 for Rs.137 per kg. Whereas in Delhi it was available for Rs 106.55 on January 2, which is now available at Rs 108.70 per kg.

The government has received inputs that despite the import of Arhar pulses in sufficient quantity, the stock is not being released in the market. Hoarding of Arhar pulses is being done. And through hoarding, efforts are being made to deliberately create a shortage of Arhar pulses in the market. Due to the hoarding, a jump in the prices of Arhar Dal has also been seen.

The reason for the increase in the prices of pulses is the decrease in supply from Myanmar. So the supply from Africa has also decreased. While the demand for pulses is seeing a boom in India. Due to mismatch in demand and supply, the prices of Arhar and Urad have increased. Production has also decreased since then. The production of pulses was 42 lakh tonnes in 2021-22, which has come down to 36 lakh tonnes in 2022-23.

This year there are assembly elections in many states, and a year later there are Lok Sabha elections. It is a big challenge for the government to control the prices of pulses. The central government has asked the states to verify the stocks. And those who have not disclosed the stock have also been asked to take action against them under the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 and the Hoarding Act. Due to the elections, the government does not want to take any risk. In such a situation, it is believed that the government can sell pulses through Kendriya Bhandar and Nafed as well, so that people can be relieved from the inflation of pulses.
