‘Bharat Dal’ brand: Piyush Goyal launches sale of subsidized chana dal at Rs.60 per kg
Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal launched the sale of subsidized chana dal under the brand name ‘Bharat Dal’ at the rate of Rs.60 per kg for one kg pack and Rs.55 per kg for a 30 kg pack.
The introduction of ‘Bharat Dal’ is a step taken by the Centre towards making pulses available to consumers at affordable prices by converting the chana stock of the government into chana dal.
The retail outlets of the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation (NAFED) in Delhi-NCR are selling the chana dal. The milling and packaging of the chana dal is undertaken by NAFED for distribution through its retail outlets in Delhi-NCR and also through the outlets of the NCCF, Kendriya Bhandar, and Safal.
The chana dal, under this arrangement, is also made available to state governments for supplies under their welfare schemes, police, jails, and also for distribution through their consumer cooperative outlets.
Chana is the most abundantly produced pulse in India and is consumed in several forms all over the country.
