India bans all wheat exports over food security risk

A “sudden spike” in global wheat prices was putting India, neighboring countries, and other vulnerable countries at risk, according to a Friday notice in the government gazette signed by Santosh Kumar Sarangi, the Director-General of Foreign Trade.

Due to a threat to its food security, India, the world’s second-largest producer of wheat, has banned its exports.

Wheat exports will be permitted if an Irrevocable Letter of Credit (ICLC) was given on or before the date of the notice, and “on the basis of permission granted by the Government of India to other countries to meet their food security needs and based on the request of their governments.”

“The export policy of wheat against the above mentioned HS codes is ‘Prohibited’ with immediate effect except for shipments fulfilling the conditions mentioned in [paragraph 2 above which will be allowed as per the procedure outlined in Para 1.05 (b) of the Foreign Trade Policy, 2015-2020,” the director wrote.

Despite being the world’s second-largest wheat grower, India consumes the majority of the wheat it produces.

From 2022 to 2023, the country aimed to export 10 million tons, most of which would have gone to emerging countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand.

India’s wheat production has been hampered by record-breaking heat, and the distribution of free grain during the COVID-19 pandemic has taxed its own reserves.

Other nations are also suffering from weak harvests, making it difficult for them to assist in offset shortfalls caused by Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Ukraine and Russia exported a third of the world’s wheat and barley before the invasion.

Since the beginning of the year, global wheat prices have risen by more than 40%.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) trimmed its forecast for world wheat production in 2022 from 784 million tonnes to 782 million tonnes earlier this month.

  2. Another way to bring the world to it’s knees! Remember Jesus said there would be famines, among other things in the end times( which we are in now), so we have to start producing our own fertilizer,our own food supplies, medical equipment, medicines, and other items instead of relying on foreign countries. Of course our idiot in chief won’t allow that to happen, because he and Obama want our country destroyed! They need to be ousted now!!!!!

  3. I totally agree, Obama is running his third term now, that is why Biden was elected. He is mentally ill, can’t find his way in his home. Obama just slid in to ruin our country, like the slime he is, it was all planned.
