Abstract

Over the past two decades, the Government of India sought import of pulses as a key trade policy measure to boost domestic availability of pulses. This was inevitable to address the soaring of domestic prices which was hurting the poor consumers. The decline in the consumption of pulses as a result of soaring of prices will have adverse implications for food security as pulses is an important staple crop consumed by all types of households in India. However, the import pulses can also lead to world price transmission to domestic market and the manner in which prices are transmitted depends upon the type of importers—whether they have monopoly in trade or not—and the nature of domestic demand.
