Why are pulses getting expensive?
Traders say that during the lockdown, tur prices rose to Rs 90 per kg, which later fell to Rs 82 per kg. But once again, the price has started climbing. The demand for pulses has increased due to the festive season demand. At the same time, traders fear that the arhar crop in Karnataka will suffer due to excessive rains. There can be a loss of 10% in yield.
Last year the price was low
Let me tell you that last year during this period, the price of gram dal was Rs 70-80 per kg. But, this time it has reached beyond 100 rupees.
