Business sources say that import duty on tur will not affect its prices, if the government wants to raise the price of tur, then the government will have to eliminate the stock limits on pulses across the country. Withdrawing the stock limit, traders will buy pulses from farmers to increase their stock, which may result in price rise in the market.
