Dal millers have urged government to remove Goods and Services Tax (GST) from branded Pulses to expand business in oversea market and strictly monitor import of Pulses to help farmers and traders. Currently branded Pulses attract 5% GST.

GST and poor availability of raw materials amid sharp fluctuation in Pulses prices have escalated cost of operation of Dal mills forcing many to slash output.

Industry players said that high cost of operation and poor price for finished goods make traders opportunities difficult for Dal mills locally and internationally.

Lack of skilled workers and inefficiency in packaging also hurts Dal mills.
