To Curb The Rise In Domestic Prices, India Bans Wheat Exports

India has suspended wheat exports with immediate effect as part of its efforts to contain rising domestic prices. The decision to limit wheat exports comes after a massive crop loss in March due to a heatwave. Inflation, which reached 7.79 percent in April, is also putting pressure on the government. According to government sources, China is importing food grains from India after crop losses caused food insecurity there.
