wheat prices hike in india

The central government has banned the export of all wheat from the country. The decision comes a day after annual consumer price inflation hit an eight-year high of 7.79 percent in April. In addition, retail food inflation has risen to 8.38 percent.

In a new order, the export of all wheat, including high protein durum and normal soft bread varieties, has been shifted from ‘free’ to ‘prohibited’ category with effect from May 13. The commerce department notification said that from now, only two types of shipments will be allowed.

The first is on the basis of permission granted by the Government of India to other countries to meet their food security needs, and on the basis of requests from their governments.

Second are the exports under transitional arrangements where an irrevocable credit note has been issued on or before the date of this notification, subject to production of such documentary evidence as prescribed.

Drop in Purchases

It is said that the government procurement of wheat is decreasing. There is a possibility that procurement of wheat by government agencies will come down to a 15-year low this time from the highest so far last year in the current marketing season. This time around 18.5 million tonnes (MT) will likely be procured.

This figure will be the lowest since the procurement of 11.1 million tonnes in 2007-08. Farmers mostly sell from April to mid-May, although government wheat procurement technically extends until June and the marketing season until the following March.

Moreover, this will be the first time that wheat procured from the new crop (18.5 million tonnes) is less than the public stock at the start of the marketing season (19 million). Fresh purchases have always been higher than the opening balance stock.

This was also the case during the last two low procurement years of 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. This year will be an exception and in stark contrast to 2021-22, which saw unprecedented levels of both opening stock (27.3 million tonnes) and procurement (43.3 million tonnes).

There are two main reasons why procurement has dropped to a 15-year low this time around. These are export demand and low production.

Gyanvapi Mosque

In the latest update in the Gyanvapi mosque row, an advocate of the Anjuman Intezamia Masjid Committee who manages the Gyanvapi Mosque in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh on Monday said that the claim of petitioners about Shivling is misleading. He said that the thing that has been found in the Wazookhana is a fountain, not Shivling.

Rais Ahmad Ansari said that there is only a fountain in the Wajookhana in the Gyanvapi mosque. The structure, which the petitioners are claiming to be a Shivling is a fountain. It is a misleading claim.

His statement came soon after the Varanasi court ordered that a pond in the Gyanvapi mosque complex should be sealed over the claims of Shivling and prohibit the entry of any person to the area. The court order was based on a petition that was filed by an advocate that there was some concrete evidence that needed to be protected.

Supreme Court bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud will hear this case on Tuesday that is May 17 an appeal that has been filed by the masjid committee against the Allahabad High Court’s order allowing the court-appointed commissioner to the inspector, conduct a survey and videography of the Gyanvapi Mosque.

An advocate from the Hindu side, Madan Mohan Yadav, claimed that the Shivling is Nandi faced and is 12 feet by 8 inches in diameter.

Gyanvapi Mosque is adjacent to the Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi. Currently, the court in Varanasi has directed the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) to probe the structure of the Gyanvapi Masjid.

On April 18, 2021, five Delhi based women- Rakhi Singh, Laxmi Devi, Sita Sahu, among others moved the court with their plea where they sought permission for daily prayers before the idols of Hindu deities on its outer walls. They also sought to stop the opponents from causing any damage to the idols.
