Core Tip: The Government of India has restricted the imports of pulses like tur, moong and urad since August 2017, with annual quota restriction of five lakh metric tonne (of which tur accounts for two lakh MT and urad and moong account for 1.5 lakh MT each).
The Government of India has restricted the imports of pulses like tur, moong and urad since August 2017, with annual quota restriction of five lakh metric tonne (of which tur accounts for two lakh MT and urad and moong account for 1.5 lakh MT each) in order to stabilise the prices and protect the interest of the farmers.

All varieties of pulses, including organic pulses, have been made free for export without any quantitative ceiling. The export has been allowed through Customs EDI (electronic date interchange) ports.

However, export through the non-EDI land custom stations (LCSs) on the Indo-Bangladesh and Indo-Nepal borders has also been allowed subject to registration of quantity with the DGFT (Directorate General of Foreign Trade).

Under the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) of the Foreign Trade Policy 2015-2020, Bengal gram, with HS Code 07132020, was provided rewards at the rate of seven percent for exports made between March 20, 2018 and September 20, 2018.

The values of India’s imports of agricultural commodities, including pulses, vegetable oils, wheat and apples for the last four years and the current year, along with the percentage change for the current year are given below:
