Masoor, which had been trading low for the past few days, gained marginally with rise in price of imported masoor on Mumbai port.
On Friday, masoor (bold) in Indore mandis ruled at Rs 3,375 a quintal, while masoor (medium) ruled at Rs 3,200.
Even as domestic stock has declined and new crop still two months away, availability of imported masoor in large quantity, has reigned in its prices, said a local wholesale pulse trader Prakash Vora adding that masoor prices would remain range-bound.
Even as production this year is set to decline by 25-30 per cent with decline in sowing area, future of masoor appears to be bearish with traders opting for imported masoor .
Masoor dal ruled stable with masoor dal (average) in local mandis at Rs 3,700-25, masoor dal (medium) at Rs 3,800-25.
