State-run trading firm MMTC has invited tenders for the sale of 2,000 tonnes of red lentils in the domestic market.

Bids will close on March 31 and a decision on awarding the tender will be taken on the same day, MMTC said on its website. MMTC said that it would sell 2,000 tonnes of red lentils.

However, bidders are encouraged to quote for a higher quantity as the same can be increased based on the bids received and the requirement of bidders.

The offered pulses have been sourced from Canada/Australia and are of the 2009 crop year, it said. At present, the pulses are stored at a godown in Kolkata, MMTC added.

PEC, MMTC and other state-run trading agencies like STC import different varieties of pulses on behalf of the government to augment domestic supply.
