Govt. Decided To Float Tender for Import Urad Dal Soon
The Government has decided to soon float another tender for import of 5,000 tons of urad dal to boost supply.
This would be the 2nd tender to be floated by state-run MMTC for import of pulses. The agency has already invited bids for import of 5,000 tons of tur dal (pigeon peas) and the shipments are expected to reach by September.
A decision to import additional quantities of pulses was taken at a meeting of the committee of secretaries (CoS) held last week, according to sources.
The CoS recommended state-run agencies like MMTC to come out with import bids for 5,000 tons of urad, they added.
