Pulses market rise on emergence of stockists buying against tight supplies
Firm conditions prevailed at the wholesale pulses market as select pulses led by kabuli gram rose by up to Rs 100 per quintal on the emergence of stockists buying against tight supplies.
Traders said stockists' buying against tight supplies on fall in arrivals from producing belts mainly pushed up kabuli gram and other pulses prices.
However, activity remained restricted as enquiries from neighbouring states remained negligible due to 'Bharat Bandh' call given by the Congress party and several other parties against rising fuel prices.
