116334.85 MT seized pulses released in markets

Delivery of 8,500 MT imported pulses is expected shortly

De-hoarding operations are carried out by the State Governments under the Essential Commodities Act, 1955. All the States have been requested to enforce the Act effectively.  Total 116334.85 MT seized pulsed have released in the market upto February 23, 2016. This information was given by the Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Shri Ram Vilas Paswan in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.
