Our Bureau Indore | Updated on August 01, 2014 Published on August 01, 2014

Majority of pulses and pulse seeds ruled sluggish on slack buying and subdued demand barring masur. Strong buying support and weak arrival lifted masur (bold) in Indore mandis to ₹5,350-Rs 5,400 a quintal, while masur (medium) ruled at ₹4,600-Rs 4,800. Compared to last week masur is ruling ₹100-₹150 higher. In the past two weeks, masur has almost gained ₹300-₹350 a quintal. Uptrend in masur has been attributed to higher import as domestic stock in masur almost has come to a naught. Rise in masur also lifted its dal in the past one week by ₹100 a quintal with masur dal (average) on Friday was being quoted at ₹6,150-Rs 6.200 a quintal, masur dal (bold) at ₹6,350-Rs 6,400, while masur dal (bold) ruled at ₹6,500 a quintal.
