Several states across the country are continuing with their enforcement action against hoarding and black-marketing.

In a statement, the government said that it had seized over 15,000 metric tons of pulses on Wednesday, taking the total quantity of pulses seized in de-hoarding operations to over 98,000 metric tons.

It also informed that all states are continuing with arrangements to sell pulses at reasonable rates ranging between Rs.120-140/kg through various retail distribution networks available.

It said that these two steps have had a salutary effect in improving the supply situation as well as in cooling down the prices of pulses both in the retail and wholesale markets.
