Now, duty-free imports of tur, urad extended till March 2025 – Times of India

[ad_1]

NEW DELHI: The government on Thursday extended duty-free imports of tur and urad dal till March 2025. Last week similar extension was notified for masur (lentil). The earlier zero import duty for these pulses was to end in March, 2024.
Officials said the government has notified the extension well in advance to send signals to the producers of these pulses across the globe that India will continue its policy for easy import of the cereals.
This year India has imported around 23 lakh tonnes of pulses — 10 lakh tonnes of lentil, 7.7 lakh tonnes of tur and and 4.2 lakh tonnes of urad or black gram — mostly from Aus, Canada, Myanmar, Mozambique, Tanzania, Sudan and Malawi. India meets almost 15% of its domestic pulses demand, mainly mostly tur, urad and masur through imports.
