India’s consumers needn’t worry about chickpeas prices

It is unlikely the retail price of chickpeas, or chana in Hindi, will rise much in India. In fact, it is expected to stay unchanged or even move downwards.

According to suppliers and manufacturers in the crop’s major growing regions of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, retail prices have stagnated at around INR60-65 (USD1.08-1.17) per kg, which is on the high side. This has led to both retail and bulk buyers (hotels and hostels, among others) staying away.
