The government imposed an immediate embargo on wheat exports

The government said that the move is being made to manage the overall food security of the country and to the needs of the neighbouring and other vulnerable countries. “There is a sudden spike in the global prices of wheat arising out of many factors, as a result of which the food security of India, neighbouring and other vulnerable countries is at risk,” said the Ministry in its notification.

Wheat exports have been placed in the “prohibited” category by the Centre. The government has banned wheat exports with “immediate effect,” according to an order issued by the Ministry of Commerce late Friday night.

However, the export will be allowed in case of shipments where an irrevocable letter of credit is issued on or before the date of notification. The export will be allowed on basis of permission granted by the government of India to other countries to meet their food security needs and based on the request of the governments.
