Arhar Dal Price Hike: Government has constituted a committee to control the prices of Arhar Dal and curb hoarders

Arhar Dal Price Hike: The central government has come into action on the rising prices and hoarding of Arhar Dal. The government has decided to form a committee to monitor the stock of Arhar dal and identify those who are short of Arhar dal in the hoarding market and take action. This committee has been formed under the chairmanship of Nidhi Khare, Additional Secretary, Jago Consumers. 

The Ministry of Consumer Affairs has constituted a committee under the chairmanship of Nidhi Khare, which will work in coordination with the state governments, so that the stock of Arhar Dal can be disclosed. This committee will monitor the stock of importers, mill owners, stockists, traders. The government had 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, there has also been a jump in the prices of arhar dal during the dal days. 

The government’s efforts are from dealing with the hoarders to tightening the noose on those who intentionally reduce the prices of pulses, so that the prices of Arhar pulses can be kept under control. The Ministry of Consumer Affairs said that the Ministry is also keeping an eye on the stock of other pulses so that the government can take necessary precautionary measures after any increase in the prices. In August 2022, the government issued an advisory to states and union territories to enforce disclosure of stocks of arhar dal under the Essential Commodities Act, 1955. 

Government has abolished 10 percent duty to implement Arhar Dal import from non-LDC countries  Percentage duty has been removed because there are many types of problems even when imported from duty at zero duty.  The import duty on whole Arhar Dal was removed before Holi. So that the prices of pulses available in the mandis can be reduced.  Traders will not have to pay any import duty on importing whole Arhar Dal into the country. 

According to the data of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, there has been a slight increase in the prices of Arhar Dal. On February 2, 2023, the average price of Arhar Dal has reached Rs.110.99 per kg and on March 27 it has reached Rs.114.44 per kg. That is, in less than two months, there has been a jump of 3.10 percent in the prices of pigeon pea or toor dal. From Lok Sabha in 2024 to assembly elections in many states this year, the government does not want to allow any increase in the prices of Arhar Dal.
