The Government has decided to use postal network for distribution of subsidized pulses. The decision was taken in the Inter Ministerial Committee on prices of essential commodities headed by Union Consumer Affairs Secretary, Hem Pande in New Delhi yesterday. 
The committee reviewed availability and prices of essential commodities specially pulses and suggested that in the absence of government outlets in the states, postal networks should be used for the distribution. It was observed that the prices of pulses are declining in recent weeks, while prices of some of the other commodities are stable. The committee also decided to release more Chana from buffer stock to ensure availability at reasonable prices during ongoing festival season.
It also reviewed procurement arrangements of Kharif pulses by government agencies. It was informed that so far 500 procurement centres have been opened and farmers are being paid through check or bank transfer instantly.
