Wheat loading in Kandla port resumes

Loading of wheat resumed at Kandla port on May 17 after the operations were suspended due to lack of clarity in the export ban order issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade.


The loading operations started in five vessels at the port bound for various international destinations. The loading was half way when it had to be stopped


Operations resumed in the vessel bound for Egypt with which country India had entered into an agreement. The five vessels where the loading operations resumed are to take nearly three lakh tons of wheat to Egypt, Bangladesh, Oman, Indonesia and Brazil.


Resumption of loading came as a big relief to the drivers of around four thousand trucks stranded near the entrance of Kandla port for days together with wheat from mostly Punjab and Haryana.


 The loading had remained suspended since May 14th.
