India. Cabinet Committee approves 20 lakh tonnes of wheat exports


The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on Thursday approved export of 20 lakh tonnes of wheat at $300 per tonne, a statement said.

According to the statement, a similar procedure will be followed for this export as was done earlier for export of 45 lakh tonne of wheat.

The export of 20 lakh tonne of wheat from the surplus central stocks would make available space for storage of fresh grains in government warehouses, the statement said.
