Flour Price In India: When the prices of fruits, vegetables, edible oil, petroleum oil, edible oil increase in the country, it becomes a national issue. The central government is also serious about their prices. Some time ago, an increase in the prices of wheat was observed in the country. This also affected the prices of flour. As soon as the price of flour increases, the tension of the central government starts increasing. Now steps are being taken to control the same.
Flour being sold for Rs 38 a kg
Wheat production was affected in the country last season due to heat wave. There was a significant decrease in the production of wheat. Here the Ukraine-Russia war also had an impact on wheat prices. Due to low domestic consumption, the price of wheat increased. Now it is a situation that flour is being sold up to Rs.38 per kg in the country. An increase of Rs 4 to 5 per kg has been recorded in flour. The central government is serious about this.
Flour prices may come down
According to media reports, Food Secretary Sanjeev Chopra was questioned regarding the increase in the price of wheat and flour. Said on Thursday that an increase has been observed in the retail prices of wheat and flour. The central government will soon take steps to control the rising prices. The prices of wheat and flour are being monitored regularly from the Central Government level. How can prices be reduced? Opinion polling is going on with the top leadership and experts on this too. He said that steps will be taken to control the increased prices from the level of the ministry. What would be the steps though? The picture has not been cleared regarding this.
20 lakh tonnes of wheat can come in the market
According to media reports, the secretary said that the Food Corporation of India (FCI) has enough wheat and rice stock. The central government had taken the step to ban the export of wheat as it was necessary to control prices following a decline in domestic production and shortfall in FCI’s procurement for the central pool. For this reason, the central government had banned the export of wheat in May. But now a new exercise is going on to reduce the price. The central government is considering releasing 15-20 lakh tonnes of wheat next year from FCI stocks to bulk consumers like flour mills under the Open Market Sale Scheme (OMSS) to control rising retail prices. If additional wheat comes in the market, it will affect the prices of flour.
