Wheat export ban not to affect neighbours: Indian High Commission
India's ban on wheat export will not prevent export to neighbouring countries and countries that might wish to procure the current produce to supplement their domestic food security policies, at the request of their governments, said a statement of the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.
Media has carried reports of a "ban" on export of wheat by India, it said.
"These measures have been taken to safeguard domestic food availability, mitigate food-price linked inflation and support the genuine needs of India's neighbours and other countries with food security concerns." said the statement on Sunday (May 15, 2022).
It is clarified that while restrictions have been placed on commercial exports of wheat from India, the instructions do not have any impact upon shipments of wheat already contracted for export, it also said.
