Our Correspondent Indore | Updated on March 04, 2011


A downtrend was seen in chana and tur on slack demand, while other pulses and pulse seeds ruled flat on limited enquiries. Though Indore mandis remained closed on Friday on account of Amavasya, chana saw a further Rs 50 drop in prices to Rs 2,375 a quintal in private trading. According to a chana trader, arrival of new chana in Maharashtra also added to the bearish sentiment.

Chana dal, however, was unaffected with the bold variety quoting at Rs 3,000-3,050, while chana dal (medium) quoted at Rs 2,900-2,950 and chana dal (average) quoted at Rs 2,850 a quintal.

Weak demand also dragged tur by Rs 50-75 to Rs 3,850-3,875 a quintal. Tur dal slid by Rs 50 marka quoting at Rs 6,100-6,250, whole Rs 5,700-5,800 and sawa no. Rs 5,000-5,200 a quintal. Masoor quoted at Rs 3,150-3,175 a quintal, while masoor dal (bold) quoted at Rs 3,775-3,800, medium at Rs 3,675-3,700 and average at Rs 3,550-3,575 a quintal.

Urad ruled firm at Rs 3,900-4,000 a quintal on sluggish demand and increasing selling pressure, while urad dal (chilka) ruled at Rs 4,700-4,750, urad dal (bold) quoted at Rs 5,750, while urad dal (mongar) quoted at Rs 6,400-6,600 a quintal.

In moong also bearish sentiment continues in absence of demand. In private trading, moong on Friday ruled at Rs 4800-Rs 5000 a quintal. Similarly moong dal also remained steady with prices of moong mongar quoted at Rs 6200-Rs 6300, moong dal (bold) quoted at Rs 6000 and moong dal (chilka) quoted at Rs 5400-Rs 5500 a quintal. Batri dal also declined by Rs 25 at Rs 2700 a quintal on slack demand.

According to a pulse trader, Mr Bimal Jain, sluggishness in pulses is mainly due to absence of counter sale in Indore and other stations.
