Our Correspondent Indore | Updated on April 01, 2011


Chana prices gained Rs 25 on good buying support in the physical market, particularly from the millers on Friday. Rise in chana and other pulse seeds has also been attributed to comparatively weak arrival of pulse seeds in the last few days because of closure of various mandis across Madhya Pradesh.

Chana (desi) also gained Rs 10 at Rs 2,250 a quintal, while chana (mausmi) ruled firm at Rs 2,300-2,400 a quintal. Arrival of chana in local mandis was recorded at 5,000 bags.

Rise in chana also perked up chana dal by Rs 25 with chana dal (bold) in the spot quoting at Rs 2,950-3,000 a quintal, while chana dal (medium) quoted at Rs 2,825-2,850 and chana dal (average) quoted at Rs 2,700-2,750 a quintal.

Dollar chana or chickpea gained Rs 150-200 on increased domestic demand. On the spot, it was quoted at Rs 4,800-5,000 a quintal. Arrival of dollar chana in local mandis on Friday improved sharply at about 8000 bags.

Tur ruled firm at restricted arrival. In the spot tur (Maharashtra) was quoted at Rs 3,775 a quintal, while tur (red) and tur (Nimari) were quoted at Rs 3,600 and Rs 3,300-3,500 a quintal. Demand in tur dal remained subdued with tur dal (marka) in the spot quoting at Rs 6,500 a quintal, tur dal (full) quoted at Rs 5,850-5,900 and tur dal (sawa no.) quoting at Rs 5,200-5,250 a quintal.

Urad also ruled firm on improved demand. Urad quoted at Rs 4,300 a quintal, while urad (medium) quoted at Rs 3,600-3,800 a quintal. Urad dal remained firm with urad (mongar) quoted at Rs 6,800-7,000 a quintal, urad dal (bold) quoted at Rs 6,000 a quintal and urad dal (chilka) quoted at Rs 4,900-5,000 a quintal.

Masoor on the other hand gained Rs 50 on improved demand and weak arrival. In the spot it was quoted at Rs 3,300 a quintal, while masoor (medium) quoted at Rs 3,050. Supported by rise in pulse seed, masoor dal also gained Rs 25 with masoor dal (bold) in the spot being quoted at Rs 3,900-3,925, masoor dal (medium) quoted at Rs 3,800-3,825 a quintal and masoor dal (average) quoted at Rs 3,675-3,700 a quintal. Moong (best quality) ruled at Rs 4,800-5,000, while moong (medium) quoted at Rs 4,200-4,400.

Similarly, moong dal ruled firm with moong mongar in the spot quoted at Rs 6200-Rs 6300 a quintal, moong dal (bold) quoted at Rs 6000 and moong dal (chilka) quoted at Rs 5500-Rs 5600 a quintal.
