2012-13 में चावल खरीद में कमी

गेहूं खरीद में लगभग 32 फीसदी की गिरावट के बाद सरकार की 2012-13 की चावल खरीद भी लगभग 3 फीसद तक घट कर 3.41 करोड़ टन रह गई। खासकर आंध्र प्रदेश और उत्तर प्रदेश जैसे मुख्य चावल उत्पादक राज्यों में कम खरीद की वजह से इसमें कमी आई है। चावल खरीद सत्र अक्टूबर से सितंबर तक चलता है।
हालांकि विश्लेषकों का कहना है कि महत्त्वाकांक्षी राष्टï्रीय खाद्य सुरक्षा विधेयक पर इसका प्रभाव पडऩे की आशंका नहीं है, क्योंकि सरकारी गोदामों में रखा स्टॉक जरूरी मात्रा से भी अधिक है।

वित्त वर्ष 2013-14 में सरकार ने सितंबर तक लगभग 2.6 करोड़ टन गेहूं की खरीदारी की है जबकि पिछले पूरे वर्ष में यह खरीदारी 3.81 करोड़ टन पर थी। हालांकि गेहूं खरीद सत्र मार्च तक जारी रहता है, लेकिन 96 फीसदी से अधिक फसल साल के पहले चार महीनों में ही खरीदी जाती है। इस साल कम खरीद की मुख्य वजह यह भी रही है कि निजी व्यापारियों ने खरीदारी में इजाफा किया है और कुल गेहूं उत्पादन में कमी भी आई।

भारतीय खाद्य निगम ((एफसीआई) ने 2012-13 में किसानों से 3.41 करोड़ टन गेहूं की खरीदारी की जबकि पिछले साल यह आंकड़ा लगभग 3.5 करोड़ टन था। खरीदारी में कमी आंध्र प्रदेश में दर्ज की गई है जहां खरीदारी 96 लाख टन से घट कर 64.5 लाख टन रह गई जबकि उत्तर प्रदेश में यह 33.5 लाख टन से घट कर 22.8 लाख टन पर रही।

एक वरिष्ठï सरकारी अधिकारी ने कहा, 'खरीदारी में गिरावट इसलिए भी आई है, क्योंकि निजी व्यापारियों ने खरीदारी में दिलचस्पी बढ़ाई है और इसके अलावा उत्पादन भी कम रहा।Ó कमीशन फॉर एग्रीकल्चर कोस्ट्ïस ऐंड प्राइसेज (सीएसीपी) के चेयरमैन अशोक गुलाटी ने बिजनेस स्टैंडर्ड को बताया कि धान की खरीदारी में गिरावट देश के लिए सकारात्मक है, क्योंकि सरकार के पास पर्याप्त भंडार है और इससे दीर्घावधि परिदृश्य प्रभावित नहीं हो रहा है।

एफसीआई आंकड़ों के अनुसार सरकार के गोदामों में चावल का भंडार अनुमानित तौर पर लगभग 2.1 करोड़ टन होगा जो जरूरी 70 लाख टन की मात्रा से तीन गुना अधिक है जबकि गेहूं का भंडार 3.83 करोड़ टन रहने का अनुमान है जो जरूरी 1.4 करोड़ टन की मात्रा से अधिक है।

आंकड़ों से पता चलता है कि पंजाब, हरियाणा और छत्तीसगढ़ में चावल की खरीद पूर्ववर्ती वर्ष के मुकाबले अधिक बनी हुई है। एफसीआई के आंकड़ों के अनुसार पंजाब से सरकार की चावल खरीदारी 2012-13 में बढ़ कर 85.5 लाख टन रही जो पूर्ववर्ती वर्ष में 77.3 लाख टन थी। छत्तीसगढ़ में यह 41.1 लाख टन से बढ़ कर 48 लाख टन पर रही जबकि हरियाणा से चावल की खरीदारी 16 लाख टन से बढ़ कर 25 लाख टन पर पहुंच गई।

IRRI to Help Myanmar Boost Rice Production, Exports

The Myanmar government and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) have signed a new memorandum of understanding this week to help implement the 'Myanmar Rice Sector Development Strategy and Program' which aims to boost rice production and improve other aspects of the rice sector in Myanmar.

Myanmar was the top rice exporter in the 1960’s and is trying to become a prominent rice exporter once again to strengthen its economy. According to Myanmar officials, Myanmar’s Irrawaddy Delta is larger than Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and has the potential to boost Myanmar’s rice production and exports significantly.

In a conference held by Myanmar’s Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MoAI) and IRRI this week, the MoAI minister said Myanmar requires rice varieties that can tolerate salinity, floods, drought, and low temperatures. There is also a need to increase the use of quality seeds, expand the use of modern agricultural techniques, reduce postharvest losses, establish access to local and international markets, and increase the capabilities of its rice scientists, the minister added.

Collaboration between IRRI and Myanmar dates back to 1976. Since then, joint efforts have resulted in the development of 77 high-yielding rice varieties, including many that are currently grown by farmers for the domestic market and some that are grown for export, according to IRRI.

Non-basmati rice exports to rise as Russia lifts import ban

NEW DELHI: India expects significant rise in export of non-basmati rice following Russia's lifting the ban on the commodity, a top government official said today.

"Now Russia has lifted ban on import of non-basamti rice from India and we hope to make significant gains in the Russian market. They have also removed ban on oilseeds," Commerce and Industry Secretary S R Rao told reporters here.

The Russian Federation had imposed the ban eight months ago due to the presence of khapra beetles pest in rice and aflatoxin contamination of peanuts.

Russia decided to remove restrictions after its officials visited processing units in India in June. The delegation was convinced about the safety measures that were put in place here while processing these food items, the official said.

The resumption of trade comes as the country seeks to boost exports to address the current account deficit.

India is the world's second largest rice producer, with an output of 104.40 million tonnes in the 2012-13 crop year (July-June). The country exports significant quantity of basmati and non-basmati rice in the overseas markets.

International Grain Council (IGC) has recently projected that the country may export 8.5 million tonnes in 2013-14, down by almost 10 per cent from 9.4 million tonnes shipments made in the last year.

किसानों के खाते में जमा होगा धान का पैसा

बिलासपुर:
किसानों को धान बेचने के बाद अपने ही चेक के लिए बैंक का चक्कर लगाना नहीं पड़ेगा। राशि सीधे उनके खाते में जमा हो जाएगी और वे चेक के झंझट से हमेशा के लिए छुटकारा पा जाएंगे। जिला सहकारी केंद्रीय बैंक नवंबर से शुरू होने वाली धान खरीदी में यह व्यवस्था लागू करने की तैयारी में जुट गया है।
जिले में 128 ख्ररीदी केंद्रों में पांच अरब रुपए के धान की खरीदी होती है। 2012-13 में 56 हजार से \'यादा किसानों से करीब 38 लाख क्विंटल धान खरीदा गया और उन्हें 1200-1250 रुपए प्रति क्विंटल की दर से समर्थन मूल्य दिया गया। हर बार की तरह इस बार भी चेक बांटे गए, लेकिन इससे पहले किसानों को अपना चेक लेने के लिए कई दिनों तक समिति और बैंक के चक्कर लगाने पड़े। चेक आने के बाद भी किसानों को नहीं देने, उसके एवज में रिश्वत मांगने और योजना का लाभ नहीं देने जैसी शिकायतें इस बार भी मिलती रही। किसानों ने इसकी शिकायत नोडल अधिकारियों के माध्यम से बैंक के सीईओ तक पहुंचाई और इसके बाद इस समस्या से हमेशा के लिए छुटकारा पाने की दिशा में कोशिश शुरू हुई। नतीजा ये हुआ कि बैंक ने धान बेचने वाले किसानों की राशि सीधे उनके खाते में जमा करने का निर्णय लिया। मंथन में यह बात सामने आई कि सभी किसानों का बैंक में एकाउंट है। इसके बावजूद चेक देने की परंपरा गलत है। बोनस की राशि भी किसानों को चेक से दी जाती है, जिससे भ्रष्टाचार को बढ़ावा मिलता है। किसानों को अपने ही अनाज के बदले मिलने वाले रुपए के लिए भटकना पड़ता है जिससे बैंक की छवि खराब हो रही है। इन बातों को गंभीरता से लेते हुए अब यह कोशिश की जा रही है कि इस बार धान खरीदी शुरू हो तो किसानों को सीधे उनके खाते से रुपए दिए जाएं। यानी, किसान अपना पासबुक लेकर बैंक जाएं और रुपए निकाल सके। इससे चेक को लेकर होने वाली दलाली पर अंकुश लगेगा। हालांकि, इस दिशा में कोई तैयारी नहीं की गई है और योजना अपने शुरुआती चरण में है, लेकिन उम्मीद है जल्द ही इस दिशा में प्रयास शुरू होगा। बैंक का अनुमान है कि इस बार जिले में ४० लाख क्विंटल धान की खरीदी समितियों में होगी, जिसके लिए तैयारी शुरू कर दी गई है।

धान की बिक्री को लेकर किसान आशंकित

घोसी (मऊ) : धान का कस्टम मिल्ड राइस (सीएमआर) जमा न होने से किसानों को गत वर्ष बेचे गए धान का भुगतान न मिल सका है। उधर एफसीआई (भारतीय खाद्य निगम) ने मानक के अनुसार चावल न होने से राइस मिलों से चावल लेने से इंकार कर चुकी है। मिलरों के विरुद्ध आरसी जारी है। तमाम मिलों का लाइसेंस निलंबित है। ऐसे में कब मिलेगा भुगतान कहा नहीं जा सकता है। इस वर्ष मिलर धान की कुटाई से अभी से तौबा करने की बात कर रहे हैं। जाहिर है कि इस बार धान की खरीद की राह में तमाम रोड़े होंगे। किसान भी इस समस्या को समझते हुए धान बेचने को लेकर आशंकित है।

जनपद में धान का बेहतर उत्पादन होता है। जनपद के किसानों से धान की खरीद हेतु लगभग चार दर्जन क्रय केंद्र स्थापित किए जाते हैं। इन केंद्रों पर क्रय धान को कुटाई हेतु विभिन्न संबद्ध राइस मिलों को भेजा जाता है। कुटाई के बाद प्राप्त मिलें चावल को सीएमआर (कस्टम मिल्ड राइस) के रूप में एफसीआई गोदाम में पहुंचाती हैं। वर्ष 11-12 में एफसीआई का मानक ऐसा कि लगभग 40 राइस मिलों में सीएमआर (वह चावल जो केंद्रों से लिए गए धान की कुटाई के बाद देना आवश्यक है) के रूप में एक लाख पंद्रह हजार कुंतल चावल रिजेक्ट हो गया। गत वर्ष शासन ने बकाया सीएमआर चावल मूल्य के एक फीसदी राशि के समतुल्य बैंक गारंटी लेकर किसी तरह अनुबंध किया। गत वर्ष किसी तरह धान मिलों तक पहुंचा पर सीएमआर जमा करने के वक्त एफसीआई ने एक बार फिर मानक का चाबुक चलाया। हाल यह कि गत वर्ष चंद मिलें ही चावल जमा कर सकीं। उधर शासन ने अंतत: इन मिलरों के विरुद्ध आरसी जारी कर दी है। कुछ मिलों का लाइसेंस भी निलंबित कर दिया है। अब खरीद के बाद कहां और कैसे होगी धान की कुटाई स्पष्ट नहीं है। राइस मिल एसोसिएशन के अध्यक्ष शंकर प्रसाद कहते हैं कि जिले की राइस मिलों में कुटाई के बाद प्राप्त चावल एफसीआई के मानक के अनुरूप नहीं होता है तो मिलर क्यों धान की कुटाई करें और आरसी का दंड भुगतें। इस स्थिति के बीच तमाम सवालों में अहम यह कि ऐसे में किसानों के धान की खरीद सरकारी क्रय केंद्र करेंगे या किसान खुले बाजार में सस्ते दाम धान बेचने को विवश होगा।

रूस चावल के आयात पर रोक हटाए : भारत

भारतीय कृषि उत्पादों के लिए बाजार उपलब्ध कराने के मकसद से भारत ने रूस से कहा है कि वह भारतीय चावल के आयात पर लागू अस्थाई प्रतिबंध हटाए।

वाणिज्य व उद्योग मंत्री आनंद शर्मा और रूस के आर्थिक विकास मंत्री एलेक्सी वेलेंटिनोविच के बीच हुई बातचीत में यह मुद्दा उठाया गया। दोनों देशों के मंत्रियों के बीच बातचीत ब्रुनेई में आसियान देशों के मंत्रियों के सम्मेलन के बाद हुई।

 शर्मा ने रूस को भारतीय कृषि उत्पादों के निर्यात के लिए मानकों के संबंध में सेनेटरी व फायटोसेनेटरी उपायों पर सहमति बनाने पर बल दिया।

ये मानक खाद्य सुरक्षा और पशु व वनस्पति स्वास्थ्य सुनिश्चित करने के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं। शर्मा ने मुख्य रूप से भारतीय चावल का आयात अस्थाई रूप से स्थगित करने का मुद्दा उठाया। उन्होंने रूस के मंत्री से भारतीय चावल का आयात रोकने की समीक्षा करने का अनुरोध किया।

रिपोर्ट के अनुसार अप्रैल-दिसंबर 2012 के बीच भारत से रूस को 2.5 करोड़ डॉलर का चावल निर्यात किया गया, जो पिछले साल की समान अवधि के मुकाबले करीब पांच गुना है। अप्रैल-दिसंबर 2011 में 45 लाख डॉलर का चावल निर्यात किया गया था।

इसके बाद रसियन फेडरल सर्विस फॉर वेटरिनरी एंड फायटो-सेनेटरी सर्विलेंस (एफएसवीपीएस) ने फरवरी में भारतीय चावल पर प्रतिबंध लगा दिया। भारतीय चावल की खेप में खापरा भौंरा पाए जाने के बाद आयात पर अस्थाई रोक लगा दी गई।

India Asks Russia to Lift Ban on Indian Rice

India has asked the Russian Minister of Economic Development to revoke the temporary ban on rice imports from India which Russia had placed in February 2013 over Khapra beetle contamination.

In a meeting on the sidelines of the ASEAN Ministerial meeting in Brunei, India’s Commerce Ministry sought greater market access for its agriculture products and asked Russia to review the temporary ban on rice imports from India.

India exported about 9,500 tons of rice to Russia in 2011-12.

India Chhattisgarh State Allows Rice Exports

India’s central state of Chhattisgarh has partially lifted the ban on movement of rice outside the state imposed a few weeks ago to prevent delays by millers in providing processed rice to government agencies. The decision comes after a compromise between the rice millers of the state and the government.

Local sources say that millers have agreed to complete rice processing for government agencies by the year end, and also supply a fixed a quantity of milled rice to the government every month. A court order over the ban is expected later this month.

Chhattisgarh produces about 7 million tons of rice annually and most of the rice exports from the state comprises parboiled rice.

Developing Countries Will Lead Global Rice Import Growth in 2013-22, Says USDA

Demand for rice in developing countries will drive global rice trade in the next decade until 2022 with about 97.9% of rice import growth coming from countries in Latin America, Asia (excluding Japan), Africa, and Middle East, according to USDA’s baseline projections.

The USDA says that global average per capita consumption of rice is projected to decline slightly in the next decade due to higher incomes and its related food diversification. However, increasing population in developing countries will boost demand for rice. The USDA says that developing countries will account for about 99.6% of global growth in rice consumption in the coming decade.

Africa and the Middle East region are projected to account for almost half of the growth in global rice imports in the next decade. The USDA says that rice demand in these regions will be driven by population growth and limitations in rice production. Among individual nations, the strongest rice import demand is expected to come from Indonesia and the Philippines. These two countries are likely to become the world’s largest individual rice importers, together accounting for about 25% of the projected 2013-22 increase in world rice imports, the USDA says.

Rice price in Karnataka crashes

 BANGALORE: Monsoon has brought down the price of ricein Karnataka.

In the last one month, the price of Sona Masuri has dropped from Rs 54/kg to Rs 41-46/kg, while the price of another variety, Sona Steam has reduced from Rs 37-42/kilo to Rs 32-37/kilo. Following the reduced prices, rice traders say, many consumers, who were buying Sona Steam had switched to Sona Masuri.

With bountiful water, paddy cultivation has taken off well. In fact, compared to the last year, the area under cultivation has increased by one lakh hectares to reach 15.5 lakh hectares.

Ramesh Chandra Lahoti, president of Bangalore Wholesale Foodgrain and Pulses Association explained the reasons for the crash in prices. He said: As good harvest is expected this year, no one wants to hoard rice. Everyone is in a selling mood. And there is a drastic decline, more than 30%, in the demand from Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. These states are procuring rice for lesser price from Chattisgarh and Maharashtra.''

There is no problem for paddy cultivation. As reservoirs are full, there is absolutely no problem for two crops, one now and another in summer,'' said Dr V S Prakash, director, Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre. In the state, the first rice crop is cultivated from June-July and harvested during December. The second crop is sown during January and harvested in April-May. The major paddy cultivation regions are Mysore, Mandya, Raichur, Shimoga, Davangere and Bellary.

Meanwhile, the sale of IR 64 (Dosa/Idli rice) has fallen by 20% due to the state government's cheap rice (Re 1/kilo). The Anna Bhagya scheme, to provide the poor households with 30 kg of rice per month at Re 1 per kilo was launched on July 10. However, the price of the IR 64 hasn't hovered, but remains at Rs 26/kilo. This variety of rice (IR 64) is harvested only once a year. It is of limited quantity. Hence, there is no fluctuation in the prices,'' said Lahoti.

India Exports 6 Million Tons of Rice in January – July 2013

India’s rice exports have surged in the last three months due to the depreciation of the Indian rupee compared to the USD. According to the USDA Post in New Delhi, India’s rice exports in January – July 2013 have reached around 6 million tons, with rice exports surging almost 25% in June to around 1 million tons, up from around 800,000 tons seen in May 2013.

Decline in the value of Indian rupee by around 13% from around INR 53 per dollar in April 2013 to about INR 60 per dollar in July, 2013 helped improve export competitiveness of Indian rice. According to the Post, most of the non-basmati rice shipments in the past few months headed to Africa, while Iran continues to be the main buyer of Indian basmati rice.

The Post says that a bumper crop (estimated at record 108 million tons milled rice) is expected in India this year, and rice stocks remain at comfortable levels despite the surge in rice prices in the country. The Post estimates India’s rice exports in the MY 2012-13 (October – September) to reach around 10 million tons, up about 11% from USDA official estimates of around 9 million tons, but down about 4% from around 10.37 million tons of rice exports in MY 2011-12.

Finally, rice prices see downward trend

The good monsoon this year has ensured a significant drop in rice prices in the state. The demand for rice from outside the state has dropped as well. Some traders estimate the drop, by as much as 60 per cent, is due to competition from other rice-producing states.  Traders said the price reduction is because the arrival of fresh stocks of rice, which are around seven months old and cook as well as older rice. Some types of rice like Ponni can now be bought at Rs 40 per kg against the earlier price of Rs 60.

“The Sona Masuri rice from November last year is now selling at Rs 41-46 at Yeshwantpur APMC. The monsoon has also helped to reduce the prices,” said Bangalore Wholesale Foodgrains and Pulses Merchants Association president Ramchandra Lahoti. The price of Sona Masuri has dropped by almost Rs 10 from the earlier price of Rs 50-54. Another variety, the Sona steam rice is now selling at Rs 32-36 per kg.  He added that the demand for Sona Masuri continues to be strong across the state. “We are expecting new crop around October. Traders will want to dispose of their stocks as soon as the fresh stock comes in, which means that the price will remain at their current rates or drop lower,” he said.

India Removes Customs Duty on Rice Bran Imports

The Indian government has removed the Customs duty on rice bran and rice bran oil cake imports to boost production of rice bran oil and other products made from rice bran in the country. The new policy will be effective from October 1, 2013.

So far, Indian traders have not imported rice bran due to high Customs duty of around 15%. The move to remove the Customs duty on rice bran imports is likely to make feasible rice bran imports from neighboring countries such as Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Indian rice bran oil manufacturers say there is a growing demand for rice bran oil in India due to its superior cooking qualities and health benefits, and the industry requires more rice-bran to meet demand. They estimate that rice bran imports by India could reach around 50,000 – 100,000 tons in one year.

India is one of the world’s largest consumers of edible vegetable oil. The country produces about 8.2 million tons of edible vegetable oil, but has to import around 11 million tons annually to meet domestic demand. Rice-bran oil production in India currently stands at around 900,000 tons.
