Improved buying support, weak arrival and decline in arrival of imported moong on the port have lifted moong prices by Rs 200 a quintal. On Friday, moong (bold) rose to Rs 5,600-5,800. Similarly, moong (medium) also gained Rs 200 to Rs 4,800-5,000. Besides, costlier import has also contributed to steep rise in moong prices, said a trader Sanjay Agrawal. Moong dal remained stable with moong dal (medium) at Rs 6,200-6,300, moong dal (bold) at Rs 6,700-6,800, while moong mongar ruled at Rs 7,200-7,400.

Masoor declined by Rs 50 to Rs 4,000-4,050 on slack demand, while masoor (medium) ruled firm at Rs 3,700-3,800. Given weak domestic crop output and costlier imort, any major fall in masoor prices from its current level appears unlikely, said another trader.

Masoor dal (average) on Friday declined to Rs 4,350-75 , masoor dal (medium) at Rs 4,450-75, while masoor dal (bold) declined to Rs 4,550-75 . Tur also declined by Rs 50 to Rs 4,600-50 on slack demand. Tur (Madhya Pradesh) ruled flat at Rs 4,000-4,200. Tur dal remained unchanged with tur dal (full) being quoted at Rs 6,600-6,700 , tur dal (sawa no.) at Rs 5,900-6,000, while tur marka ruled at Rs 7,000 a quintal.
