India to export unrestricted tur and urad to Mozambique till 2024

The Indian government and exporters can export tur dal without any upper limit until the same date

The High Commission of India in Maputo has informed pulse exporters in Mozambique that India will be importing pigeon peas (tur) and urad without any restrictions on quantity until March 2024.

The Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Government of India has made it clear that these imports will fall under the Free Category (OGL) until March 31, 2024. This means that the import of tur dal and urad dal will be done freely by the Indian government and exporters can export tur dal without any upper limit until the same date.

The MoU quota for the minimum purchase of 2 lakh tonnes of pigeon peas by India from Mozambique, which was renewed in November 2020, has no relevance under the free import policy regime for pigeon peas until March 31, 2024. Additionally, the Indian government has removed the import duty of 10 per cent on pigeon peas from March 3, 2023, to avoid the procedural hurdle created by the need for importers to produce a country of origin certificate to avail of the Duty-Free Preferential Treatment Scheme.
