Based on a quasi-one-dimensional limit of quantum Hall states on a thin torus, we construct a model of interaction-induced topological pumping which mimics the Hall response of the bosonic integer quantum Hall (BIQH) state. The quasi-one-dimensional counterpart of the BIQH state is identified as the Haldane phase composed of two-component bosons which form effective spin-1 degrees of freedom. An adiabatic change between the Haldane phase and trivial Mott insulators constitutes off-diagonal topological pumping in which the translation of the lattice potential for one component induces a current in the other. The mechanism of this pumping is interpreted in terms of changes in polarizations between symmetry-protected quantized values.
