MUMBAI (Reuters) - India, the world’s biggest producer of pulses, has allowed exports of a few varieties of pulses, a government statement said on Friday.

They are red gram, black gram and green gram, locally known as arhar, urad and moong.

India banned exports of pulses a few years ago when domestic prices jumped due to a production shortfall.
