CEA panel sows the seeds of a 'pulses revolution'

The CEA listed a series of measures, some to be implemented immediately and others in the medium term -

  • Increase MSP for tur, urad, gram; direct CACP to review MSP formula.
  • Eliminate export ban on pulses and stock limits.
  • Put government agencies on high gear to procure kharif pulses at the announced MSP.
  • Review ESMA and future trading.
  • Promote development of GM technologies.
  • Encourage states to delist pulses from their agricultural produce market committees (APMCs).
