DELHI, INDIA — India’s Ministry of Finance has reinstated a 10% import duty on wheat. The government had removed the import duty on Dec. 8, 2016, to boost domestic availability and check retail prices, but made the decision this month to return to the import duty in an effort to protect farmers’ interest in what is expected to be a record crop year.
The new wheat crop recently started arriving in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat.
