In news from the commodities space, as per an article in The Economic Times, Indian basmati rice is getting a premium of US$20-30 (Rs 1,550-2,330) per tonne from countries in the Middle East.

This is due to rumours spreading out that New Delhi may put a ban on the export of the commodity to help cool local inflation.

Here's an excerpt from the report:

  • Exporters have received communication from buyers to urgently ship the aromatic, long-grain rice, trade sources said.

    A firm price trend in global markets has pushed up domestic basmati prices by up to 15% in the last two weeks. The export price of basmati rice, which was $1,200 per tonne in November last year when the crop began arriving, cooled slightly but increased again in the past two weeks to $1,350.

Note that India had put curbs on wheat exports earlier this month to control the food grain's price, which has been rising due to worries over global short supplies amid the Russia-Ukraine war.

Though India is the largest exporter of basmati rice, in the last three years, India's basmati rice exports have been reducing.

This is mainly due to the falling rupee reserves in Iran and the sanctions imposed by the US. Besides this, trade policies in Europe have also led to a fall in sales.
