India prohibits wheat exports

India banned wheat exports with immediate effect citing food security risks. Exports of all wheat have been moved from ‘free’ to the ‘prohibited’ category from May 13.

Two kinds of exports will still be allowed. The first is to countries that require wheat for food security needs and the second is based on requests from governments, according to Bloomberg, which cited a notification by India’s Directorate General of Foreign Trade.
