They have done it in the past as well. I think they do it mostly to force companies to buy their own country's lentils first before cheap imports. They are trying to bring down their inventories and raise prices for their farmers. It is also a trade issue as the US dropped them from preferred trade status so India is now putting up to 70% on other US products as well, Almonds, apples, etc.. It comes to try to force talks ahead of the G20. Canada gets automatically dragged into the dispute as we are a huge pulse supplier to India. Hope they get it worked out.
