Domestic procurement of pulses by Indian government agencies under the country's public distribution system has reached 115,000 tonnes, with a further 12,500 tonnes ordered.

The government said procurement of Rabi pulses, crops grown in the winter season, had reached to 64,000 tonnes this week, which combined with earlier procurement of 51,000 tonnes of Kharif crops – grown during the monsoon season – put total domestic procurement of pulses by government agencies at 115,000 tonnes.
