Pulses shipments rose 18 percent in volume during the April-February 2017-18 period at around 1.34 lakh tonnes against the corresponding previous year’s 1.13 lakh tonnes, per provisional data released by the Agricultural and Processed Food Export Development Authority (APEDA).

Exports of Pulses are beginning to look up after the Centre removed curbs on overseas shipments last November, after almost a decade. However, the Pulses trade feels that Indian exporters may have to work hard to regain lost markets amidst a global surplus.

Shipments for the period in terms value, were up by 15 percent at $183 million against $158 million in the corresponding period last year. The export volumes are very low compared to the estimated production of 23.95 million tonnes.

Exports are unlikely to help stabilise domestic prices in the near term as there is surplus supply in both domestic and international markets. Pulses such as Chana Dal and Moong Dal are being shipped, apart from Kabuli Chana.
