The government has announced some relaxation on wheat exports ban. It has been decided that wherever wheat consignments have been handed over to customs for examination and have been registered into their systems on or prior to 13th of this month such consignments would be allowed to be exported.

The Centre has also allowed a wheat consignment headed for Egypt, which was already under loading at the Kandla port. This followed a request by the Egyptian government to permit the wheat cargo to be loaded at the Kandla port. The government decided to permit the full consignment of over 61 thousand MT and allowed it to sail from Kandla to Egypt.

Earlier, the government had restricted wheat exports to manage the overall food security situation in India and to support the needs of neighbouring and vulnerable countries that are adversely affected by the sudden changes in the global market for wheat.
