Although the central government is taking concrete steps to control the import of cash, the results are coming against it. Last year, India imported 651.24 tonnes of pulses. Imports remained at a record high of 719.94 tonnes, down sharply from a year earlier. Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Anupriya Patel made the revelation in the Lok Sabha. In 2018-19, the import of 982.71 tonnes of psidi was expected to decline steadily from the following year.
