Rice, wheat buffer stock move may push market prices up

In a final push to the food security law, the Union cabinet on Thursday would consider a proposal to increase buffer stock of two vital food grains, rice and wheat, by about 60% for easy roll-out of the programme.

Such stocking may trigger an increase in prices of food grains in the open market.

The food security law was enacted in September 2013 and state governments have one year for implementing it.

The law provides for priority households (existing below poverty line) getting 5 kg of food grains per month, and Antyodaya (extremely poor) households 35 kg per month.

The combined coverage of priority and Antyodaya households should be 75% of the total rural population and 50% of the urban population.

The food ministry has proposed a change in regulations to maintain a minimum 150 metric tonnes of buffer stock in a year. As of now, the minimum buffer stock is 99.30 metric tonnes in a year.

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/1/16_01_14_pg8a.jpg

The government maintains buffer stock on quarterly basis for operational and strategic purposes. The operational purpose is to provide food grains for the public distribution system (PDS) as per quota fixed for each state. The strategic stock is for meeting emergency situations such as droughts and natural calamities.

The food ministry has proposed a substantial increase in both operational and strategic stock. This is what could possibly affect open market prices.

With change in buffer stock requirement, the government will need an increase in capacity of silos to store additional food grains.

The cabinet has already approved a policy for public private partnership to build international quality silos. According to an official source, the response of private players to the policy has been poor because of “inflexible” norms.

The Food Corporation of India often faces criticism over its storage facilities and large amount of food stock going waste.

मनपसंद केंद्रों पर धान बेच सकेंगे किसान

जागरण संवाददाता, इलाहाबाद : किसानों को धान बेचने के लिए अपने न्याय पंचायत या ग्राम पंचायत से संबद्ध धान क्रय केंद्र पर ही जाने की जरूरत नहीं है। अब किसान अपनी सुविधानुसार क्रय केंद्र चुन सकते हैं। खाद्य विभाग ने क्रय एजेंसियों के सभी धान क्रय केंद्रों की ग्राम व न्याय पंचायतों से संबद्धता समाप्त कर दी है। जिला खाद्य विपणन अधिकारी केके सिंह ने बताया कि जनपद के किसी भी गांव का किसान अपना धान किसी भी क्रय केंद्र पर बेच सकता है।

किसानों को बिचौलियों से बचाने के लिए खरीफ विपणन वर्ष 2013-14 के लिए क्रय नीति की घोषणा की गई है। इसके तहत मूल्य समर्थन योजना चलाई गई। किसानों को धान का वाजिब दाम दिलाने के लिए क्रय एजेंसियों को ग्राम पंचायतों से संबद्ध धान क्रय केंद्र खोले जाने की व्यवस्था की गई। इसके तहत गांव के किसान अपने ही गांव से संबद्ध क्रय केंद्र पर ही धान बेच सकते थे। जिला खाद्य विपणन अधिकारी के अनुसार अब इस व्यवस्था को खत्म करते हुए किसानों को अपना मनपसंद केंद्र चुनने की छूट दी गई है। किसानों की सुविधा के लिए धान क्रय केंद्रों की संबद्धता को समाप्त किया जा रहा है।

Bulk buyers, millers stay away from rice market

 
Karnal, Dec. 9: 

Rice market may rule range-bound in the coming days with bulk buyers keeping away from the market, said trade experts.

Rice prices were unchanged amid tepid selling on Monday.

Due to lack of trading at all levels, prices of almost all rice varieties remained unchanged, said Amit Kumar, proprietor of Ginni Rice.

There is no bulk buying in the market currently as traders have adopted a wait-and-watch policy following too much volatility in the market in the recent past, he added.

Only need-based buying is taking place and the situation of the market was anticipated, said Tara Chand Sharma, proprietor of Tara Chand and Sons.

Lack of participation by bulk buyers and millers is the prime reason behind the current situation, he said.

Market may continue to rule around current levels even in the coming days.

In the physical market, Pusa-1121 (steam) sold at Rs 8,800, while Pusa-1121 (sela) quoted at Rs 7,750-7,800 a quintal.

Pure Basmati (Raw) quoted at Rs 12,500. Duplicate basmati (steam) sold at Rs 7,500.

Sharbati (Steam) sold at Rs 5,000-5,100 while Sharbati (Sela) quoted at Rs 4,650 .

Permal (raw) sold at Rs 2,350 while Permal (sela) was at Rs 2,400 . PR-11 (sela) sold at Rs 3,200 while PR-11 (Raw) quoted at Rs 3,000.

PR14 (steam) sold at Rs 3,350 .

Paddy arrivals

About 10,000 bags of PR paddy arrived and quoted at Rs 1,300, around 20,000 bags of Pusa-1121 arrived and sold at Rs 3,700-4,350 , while 5,000 bags of Sharbati arrived and sold at Rs 2,100-2,200.

500 bags of Pure Basmati sold at Rs 5,750-5,800 , about 2,000 bags of DB sold at Rs 4,100- 50 while around 5,000 bags of Sugandha-999 was at Rs 2,750-2,800 a quintal.

India Rice Prices Reach Record High in November 2013; Up 20% from Last Year

Average wholesale rice prices in India continue to soar, reaching around Rs. 2,931 per quintal in November 2013, up about 7% from around Rs. 2,750 per quintal in October 2013, and up about 20% from around Rs. 2,441 per quintal in November 2012. Current average wholesale rice prices are the highest since at least January 2011 and probably the highest on record, according to official sources.

In terms of USD per ton, average wholesale rice prices in India stand at about $473 per ton (using current exchange rates) in November 2013, up about 5% from around $451 per ton (using historical exchange rates) in October 2013, and up about 5% from around $450 per ton (using historical exchange rates) seen in November 2012.

Harvest of the main rice crop is going on in India, but local traders say rice prices are likely to remain high in the coming months and probably surge higher later next year due to lower anticipated production and continued exports. India’s 2013-14 rice production is estimated to fall about 5% from around 105 million tons produced in 2012-13 due to the adverse impact of consecutive cyclones in October – November 2013.

Last week, the Indian government extended stockholding limit for rice and paddy under the Essential Commodities Act for another year until November 2014 to prevent hoarding. However, rice exporters with government licenses are exempt from the limit until November 2014. The government said, “This [exemption] will help exporters benefit from economies of scale and bigger operation for optimally meeting export demands on a long-term basis.”

Maximum limit of stock for rice in India is decided by the state governments. In 2009, the northern state of Punjab had fixed 500 tons limit for rice wholesalers and 50 tons limit for retailers to control rice prices.

बासमती धान के दाम गिरे, किसान मायूस

पिहोवा (वधवा): पिछले दिनों 6,000 के आसपास का रेट छूकर बासमती धान के रेटों में मंदी आने से किसानों के चेहरे पर मायूसी दिखाई देने लगी है। इसमें सबसे ज्यादा नुक्सान उन किसानों का हो रहा है जिन्होंने दाम में तेजी की संभावना को देखते बासमती को घर पर ही स्टोर कर लिया था। उल्लेखनीय है कि 2 साल पहले लगभग 1600 रुपए किंवटल बिकने वाली बासमती इस बार 4000 से शुरू होकर 6000 को छू गई थी जिससे किसानों को पहली बार रिकार्ड रेट मिलते हुए जबरदस्त लाभ मिला था।

इस बार अनेक किसानों को एक एकड़ से लगभग 80-90 हजार की फसल प्राप्त हुई। बासमती में आई तेजी के कारण किसानों के चेहरे खिल उठे तथा कम दाम पर बासमती बेचने वाले किसानों को पछतावा भी हुआ। पिछले 3-4 दिनों में बासमती के दाम में लगभग 500 रुपए किंवटल कम हो जाने से अब यह 5,500 रुपए के आसपास बिक रही है। दाम में मंदी आने के कारण किसानों के साथ साथ उन व्यापारियों को भी नुक्सान उठाना पड़ सकता है जिन्होंने ऊंचे दाम पर बासमती की खरीद की थी।

मंदा-तेजी व्यापार का हिस्सा चावल एक्सपोर्ट करने वाले संजय सिंगला व आढ़ती नरेंद्र पुरी, कृष्ण अरोड़ा, सुनील कुमार व बंटा गर्ग ने बताया कि मंदा-तेजी व्यापार का हिस्सा है। संजय सिंगला ने कहा कि इस बार बासमती के रेटों ने इतिहास बनाया है तथा फिर से कब तेजी आ जाए इसके बारे में कहा नहीं जा सकता। वहीं किसान बलबीर सिंह व रणजीत सिंह ने कहा कि बासमती में मंदी आने से उनको नुक्सान हुआ है। बासमती धान की कीमतों में इस बार किसानों की बल्ले-बल्ले करवा दी जिसके चलते ठेके पर जमीन दिए जाने के भाव में भी तेजी आ गई है। पता चला है कि इस बार जमीन का ठेका पिछले साल की अपेक्षा 5 से 10 हजार रुपए प्रति एकड़ ज्यादा हो सकता है तथा ठेके पर जमीन लेकर खेती करने वाले किसानों ने अभी से जमीन की बुकिंग करवानी शुरू भी कर दी है।

सप्ताह के अंदर एक साथ 500 रुपए गिरे दाम पिपली (सुकरम): बारीक धान के दामों में आई तेजी से जहां किसानों के चेहरों पर मुस्कान नजर आने लगी थी, वहीं इस सप्ताह बासमती व 1121 किस्म की धान में आई भारी गिरावट ने बारीक धान का स्टोर करने वाले किसानों के चेहरों पर मायूसी जरूर ला दी है। बासमती धान जहां पिछले सप्ताह 6,000 रुपए प्रति किंवटल का आंकड़ा पार कर चुकी थी। वहीं दामों में गिरावट आने से बासमती 5,000 से 5,500 रुपए प्रति किंवटल बिकने लगी है। इसी प्रकार 1121 किस्म की धान में भी 200-से 300 रुपए की गिरावट आई है। हालांकि मुच्छल धान में भी 50 से 100 रुपए की गिरावट देखने में आई।

बारीक धान के खरीदार व्यापारी मनोज गुप्ता, अमृत लाल, राजकुमार, बीर सिंह, दीपांशु सिंगला, सुरेंद्र ढींगड़ा व राजु गुलियानी आदि व्यापारियों ने बताया कि बारीक धान के दामों में आई गिरावट ने व्यापारियों को भी एक दम सकते में डाल दिया है। उन्होंने बताया कि जिस ढंग से बासमती 6,000 हजार रुपए का आंकड़ा पार कर चुकी थी। उससे उसके दामों में ओर तेजी आने की संभावना थी लेकिन अब बारीक धान के दामों में बढ़ौतरी के बारे में कुछ नहीं कहा जा सकता। इस मौके पर मंडी प्रधान नरेंद्र पाल झांब, मामचंद मुकरपुर, दविंद्र पाल गंभीर, पूर्व सरपंच ललित मोहन सिंगला, पवन मदान व सुभाष जग्गा आदि व्यापारी मौजूद थे।

धान की आवक तेज, मंडी में लगा जाम

गोहाना (अरोड़ा): जींद रोड स्थित गोहाना की नई अनाज मंडी में पिछले चार-पांच दिन से धान की आवक अधिक होने के कारण किसानों को मंडी में फसल डालने के लिए जगह नहीं मिल रही है। मंडी और आसपास के क्षेत्र में धान की फसल से भरे वाहन जमा होने से जाम की समस्या बन गई है।

जाम की समस्या के चलते मंडी से फसल के उठान का काम भी ठप्प पड़ गया है। गोहाना की नई अनाज मंडी में वर्तमान सीजन में अभी तक साढ़े 4 लाख क्विटल से अधिक आवक हो चुकी है।

 मंडी में पिछले चार-पांच दिनों से प्रतिदिन 30 से 40,000 क्विटल धान की फसल की आवक हो रही है। मंडी में अधिक आवक होने के कारण चारों तरफ फसल से भरे वाहन जमा हो गए हैं। मंडी और आसपास की सड़कों पर दूर तक वाहनों की लम्बी कतारें लग गई हैं। मंडी के जींद रोड के बाईपास, बरोदा रोड, जींद रोड पर फसल से भरे वाहनों की लगभग एक किलोमीटर दूर तक लाइनें लग गई हैं।

मंगलवार को शहर में भी पूरा दिन जाम की समस्या नजर आई। मंडी में किसानों को फसल डालने के लिए भी जगह न मिलने से उनकी समस्या बढ़ गई है। किसान मंडी में पिछले 24 घंटे से वाहनों से फसल खाली करने के लिए जगह की तलाश कर रहे हैं। मंडी में भारी संख्या में वाहन जमा होने के कारण उठान का काम भी ठप्प पड़ गया है।

किसान अशोक, सुनील, नरेंद्र, महेंद्र सिंह व राम मेहर आदि ने कहा कि मंडी में जाम की समस्या से निजात दिलाने के लिए प्रशासन द्वारा कोई व्यवस्था नहीं की गई है। उचित व्यवस्था के अभाव में किसानों को भारी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ रहा है। जाम की समस्या के चलते, जुलाना, जींद व सफीदों की तरफ जाने वाले वाहन चालक भी परेशान हैं।

Rice exports seen at 11 mt, says USDA

India's rice exports are estimated at a record 11 million tonnes in the 2012-13 marketing year ended September on bumper production and overseas demand, said the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Rice exports of India, the world's second largest rice producer, stood at 10.38 million tonnes in 2011-12 marketing year (MY) that runs from October to September. "MY 2012/13 export estimate is raised to a record 11 million tonnes based on preliminary official statistics for October 2012 to August 2013, and shipping data compiled by a private source for September 2013," USDA said in a report.

USDA has also revised upwards the rice export estimates for MY 2013-14 to 10 million tonnes from 9.3 million tonnes. However, exports are still expected to be lower than the record 11 million tonnes in previous year.

"Based on the relatively strong export demand for Indian rice, both basmati and non-basmati, and sufficient domestic supplies, the MY 2013-14 rice export estimate is raised to 10 million tonnes. While exports of basmati rice are likely to grow further, total exports are likely to be lower than last year's record sales due to relatively tight domestic supplies of non-Basmati rice and food price inflation concerns in an election year."

Quoting market sources, the department said exports of non-basmati rice have slowed down from in October 2013 due to the strengthening of the Indian rupee compared to the US dollar (current 61.5 from 65 in August/September). India had lifted the four-year ban on non-basmati exports in September 2011. It had emerged as the world's largest rice exporter in 2012 ahead of its Asian counterpart Thailand.

On production, USDA has projected an output of 105 million tonnes in 2013-14 as against 104.4 million tonnes in the previous year. The department "continues to estimate MY 2013/14 rice production at 105 million tons from 43.5 million hectare." The harvest of kharif rice is in full swing in northern states and initial harvest reports suggest good yields.

"Crop damage was reported due to Cyclone Phailin in coastal Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, and ongoing floods due to heavy rains in some parts of Odisha, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh. With rice at the grain filling stage, crop damage is likely to be heavy in the flood-affected areas," the report said.

The department said it continues to estimate MY 2013/14 production at 105 million tonnes till an assessment of crop loss is made. "Market sources report that the crop loss due to cyclone and floods in the eastern coast could be in the range of 1-2 percent of forecast production," the report said.

After vegetables, rice to get pricier with floods, drought

A decline in paddy production in eastern states and Andhra Pradesh has triggered speculation of a lower rice output this year, stoking a 10-30% spike in prices at a time when high vegetable prices have pushed inflation to a seven-month high.

Floods and incessant rains in major rice producing states such as West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh during the harvesting period have affected the paddy crop.

Talking to ET, Trilochan Mohapatra, director, Central Rice Research Institute (CRRI), said, "Floods in Odisha, Bihar and continuous rains in West Bengal during the harvesting time have affected the paddy crop.

Though the final figures are yet to be arrived at, an initial estimate suggests that the damage could be in the region of 15-20%. A drought-like situation in Jharkhand during the sowing period too will have an impact on rice production this kharif."

Eastern states contribute 55 million tonne of rice to the country's total production of 104.32 million tonne and the bulk of it is produced during the kharif season. Production in the eastern region has increased by 30% in the last three years after the UPA government launched the "Bringing Green Revolution to Eastern India" programme in West Bengal, Bihar, Assam, Odisha, Jharkhand, eastern Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Traders say rice prices have already gone up and they do not see a drop even after the new crop comes to the market. Alok Khemka, owner of Manglam Agrotech, an Odisha-based rice wholesale trading firm, said, "Prices have gone up because there is a fear in the market that this year's crop will be less.

South Indian buyers are purchasing heavy quantities from eastern states which have pushed up prices as well. The rising labour and fertilizer costs have further fuelled this trend. Prices of the common parboiled Swarna variety of rice have gone up by 30% to .`24 per kg in the wholesale market while the retail price is .`31 per kg. " Khemka, who also cultivates paddy in some 55 acres of Bhadrak district in Odisha, said prices will continue to remain firm in the coming months. "Floods and rains have not only affected production but also the quality of rice.

Therefore, going ahead there will be a dearth of quality nonbasmati rice which will make the cereal costlier."

Far away in Delhi's Nayabazar wholesale market, prices of non-basmati rice have firmed up by 10-20%. Shiv Shankar, owner of Krishna Rice Trade, said, "Prices are firm and reports emerging from eastern India show that prices will continue to be on the higher side in the coming months."

Prices in West Bengal, which produces 15.4 million tonne of rice, have already gone up by 15-25% depending upon the variety.

"The Minikit variety is selling at .`3,200 per quintal in the wholesale market, which is higher by at least 20%. This is being sold at the retail level at.`36-38 per kg," said Barin Mondol, owner of Hooghly-based Anjali Traders.

However, Mohapatra does not find any concrete reason for a sudden spike in prices.

जागरण संवाद केंद्र, रोहतक : जिला की रोहतक स्थित अनाज मंडी में 29 अक्टूबर तक धान की 4917 टन आवक हुई है, जिसमे बासमती 3457 टन तथा सरबती 1460 टन है। इसके अलावा मंडी में बाजरे की 983 मीट्रिक टन आवक हुई है। उपायुक्त डॉ. अमित कुमार अग्रवाल ने बताया कि व्यापारियों द्वारा बासमती धान 3400 से 3851 रुपये प्रति क्विंटल की दर से तथा सरबती धान 2280 से 2391 रुपये प्रति क्विंटल के हिसाब से खरीदी गई। उन्होंने बताया कि व्यापारियों द्वारा बाजरा 1080 से 1155 रुपये प्रति क्विंटल की दर से खरीदा गया। प्राप्त रिपोर्ट के अनुसार रोहतक की मंडी में 29 अक्टूबर को 977 टन धान की आवक दर्ज की गई है। इससे पहले तक अनाज मंडी में धान की कुल 3940 आवक हुई थी। इसी प्रकार जिला की रोहतक स्थित मंडी में 29 अक्टूबर को बाजरे की नौ टन आवक दर्ज की गई और इससे पहले तक मंडी में बाजरे की 974 टन आवक हुई थी।

महम में धान की खरीद शुरू, किसानों में खुशी

महम : अनाज मंडी में धान की खरीद आरंभ की गई है। खरीद होने पर इलाके के किसान बेहद खुश है। धान की फसल बेचने के लिए अब किसानों को कई प्रकार की कठिनाई से निजात मिल गई है। पहले किसानों को किराए पर गाड़ियां कर प्रदेश की अन्य मंडियों में धान बेचने जाना पड़ता था। वहा उन्हें कई दिनों तक इंतजार करना पड़ता था।

किसान सुनील कुमार, धर्मसिंह, बलराज, राजेश, तुंगल आदि ने बताया कि शहर की अनाज मंडी में धान की खरीद होने से किसानों का काफी खर्च बच रहा है। यहा पर धान डालने की भी कोई दिक्कत नहीं है। खुला स्थान होने के कारण कहीं पर भी किसान अपना धान डाल सकता है। किसानों का कहना है कि दूसरी मंडियों में अदायगी की भी परेशानी होती थी। यहा के खरीदार कुछ पैसे आवश्यकता अनुसार उसी समय भी दे देते है, बाकी की अदायगी भी 15 दिनों के भीतर देने की बात कही जा रही है ।

23 साल बाद हुई खरीद

मार्केट कमेटी के लेखाकार नरेंद्र दांगी ने बताया कि किसानों की समस्या को देखते हुए हलका विधायक आनंद सिंह दांगी के प्रयास से धान की खरीद फिर से शुरू की गई है। उन्होंने बताया कि धान खरीदने के लिए जुलाना, भिवानी, जींद व रोहतक की मंडियों से खरीददार पहुंचे हुए है, जो किसानो की धान बिना किसी परेशानी से खरीद रहे है। प्रशासन द्वारा किसानों के लिए मंडी में पानी की विशेष सुविधा की गई है। किसानों को अदायगी के लिए भी परेशानी नहीं होने दी जाएगी।
