The Centre has no plans to subsidise the export of pulses, minister of consumer affairs, food, and public distribution Piyush Goyal has said.

"There is no proposal to offer export subsidies for pulse traders," Goyal said in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha Day 3 of the monsoon session on July 20.

The comments come amid reports that exporters want a cash subsidy to boost trade.

The Economic Times reported in June that exporters and traders had asked for a 10 percent cash subsidy to boost channa exports at a time when prices had fallen below the minimum support price (MSP) on the back of record production.
