It has been revealed, because of this Arhar Dal is getting expensive, know when the rate will be cheaper

The general public has become worried due to inflation in the country. Most of the food items have become costlier along with tomatoes, onions, green vegetables and pulses. But most of all the price of tur dal is spoiling the budget of people's kitchen.

There is inflation in the country that is not taking the name of decreasing. By the time one thing is cheap, other food items become expensive. After tomatoes, onions and green vegetables, now the name of pulses has also been included in the race for inflation. Within the last 15 days, an increase of Rs 10 has been registered in the price of pulses. Due to this, the budget of the kitchen of the general public has deteriorated. The highest price of Ahar Dal is making people cry.

The special thing is that Madhya Pradesh, which produces the most pulses, is also not untouched by inflation. Here too, the price of pulses is continuously increasing. The Gadarwara belt of Narsinghpur district has the highest production of Arhar dal here. Despite this, the prices continue to rise. Due to this, along with the customers, traders and shopkeepers are also worried. If the traders and mill owners of Mandi are to be believed, in the crop season 2022-23, farmers had cultivated pigeon pea in less area. Due to this, there has been a huge decline in the production of Arhar, the effect of which is being seen in the mandis.

The supply of pigeon pea has reduced in the mandis

Traders say that due to the decline in production, the supply of pigeon pea has reduced in the mandis. Due to this the prices are increasing. Presently, Arhar is available in the wholesale market at Rs 10,000 per quintal. That is, the wholesale rate of one kg of pigeon pea became Rs.100. But coming to the retail market, it is being sold at Rs 150 to 160 per kg. Due to this pulses have disappeared from the plate of poor people. Local traders say that a new crop will come in the market from February next year. In such a situation, there may be further increase in the price of pulses till February.

Due to this the price is increasing

According to Kareli Mandi secretary Arvind Mugdal, this year the farmers of Narsinghpur district cultivated other crops instead of pigeon pea. Due to this the production decreased and the arrival of Arhar Dal in the mandis was affected. He says that now 9500 to 10700 rupees a quintal Arhar is being sold in the mandis. At the same time, after this pulse is made from it. In such a situation, due to increase in cost, the price of tur dal is increasing further. At the same time, mill operator Ramlal Rai also says that due to the decrease in the production of Arhar, there has been a shortage of pulses. In such a situation, the rates are increasing. At present, the price of pigeon pea standing in the market is Rs 115 to 120 per kg, whereas, pigeon pea is available at Rs 140 to 160 per kg. Whereas, last year its price was between 100 to 110 rupees per kg.

Prices will come down

The special thing is that within the last few months, the price of Arhar Dal has increased by 12.5 percent. However, the central government has given permission to import pulses to check inflation. It is being said that it will import 12 lakh tonnes of pulses in this current financial year, which is 35 per cent more than last year. The government hopes that this will soften the prices.
