(Corrects highest bid to $317.21/T from $317/T in headline and
first paragraph. Corrects to say the top bidder for STC was
Emmsons Gulf, not Cargill.)
NEW DELHI, Nov 20 (Reuters) - India's State Trading Corp.
received the highest bid at $317.21 per tonne from
Dubai-based trading firm Emmsons Gulf in its wheat export
tender, trade sources said on Tuesday.
In a similar wheat export tender, MMTC Ltd
received the highest bid at $317 per tonne from Singapore-based
trading firm Glencore.
State-run trading companies such as STC, MMTC and PEC have
been floating export tenders to ship out wheat from overflowing
Last month, STC floated a tender offering 40,000 tonnes from
the warehouses located in Chennai port, while MMTC offered
30,000 tonnes from the port of Mormugao on the west coast.
The quantities will have to be shipped by December.
