In order to control the rising domestic prices of wheat, the government has banned the export of wheat. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has stated that the exports issued before the release of this notification will be allowed to continue as follows.
This is not a blanket ban. The exports planned by the government to ensure food security in other countries would not be affected by this action. DGFT, in a similar notification, has announced the ease of export conditions for onion seeds. Export of onion seeds was earlier prohibited.
