Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Mar 17 (UNI) The Food Corporation of India (FCI) will release additional 50,000 tonnes of wheat later this month under the open market sale scheme (OMSS).

While 20,000 tonnes will be released for Delhi, 10,000 tonnes will be released for Haryana. About 5,000 tonnes each will be released for Jammu and Kashmir, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.

With the additional release of 50,000 tonnes, the total releases from January to March so far are 6.98 lakh tonnes.

While open market wheat prices have started softening in northern states, the prices are relatively high in the southern states.

The department of food will also consider further releases under the OMSS next month, said an official press release issued here today.
