Pepper Futures Remain Unchanged :|

The pepper futures market witnessed high volatility on different “buy and sell calls“. Finally it closed just about steady on weak demand amid thin arrivals.

“There was no pressure on spot as all were seen prepared to switch over and going for additional buying as spot was not available,” market sources said.

“Good badla was taking place,” they said. Investors were offering spot at reduced discount of Rs 200 per quintal below the January price but there were no takers.

Processors in the primary markets and inter-State operators were buying from the primary markets and moving the material out to Tamil Nadu where no tax is levied on the commodity. From there the material is shifted to Bihar, Jharkhand, UP, West Bengal etc., where the local taxes are said to be at 12 per cent and therefore the dealers there do not buy on account, according to the sources.
