MUMBAI, Nov 30 (Reuters) - India's State Trading Corp
issued two international tenders to export 190,000
tonnes of Indian milling wheat for shipments between Jan. 1 and
Feb. 25, the company said on its website on Friday.
The company would make available 150,000 tonnes at Mundra
port on the western coast and 40,000 tonnes at Chennai port on
the eastern coast. The bidding deadline for both tenders is Dec.
21, it said.
Earlier on Friday, state-run MMTC floated a tender to export
110,000 tonnes of wheat, while PEC floated three tenders to
export 190,000 tonnes of the grain.
This is part of an Indian government programme to cut huge
wheat stocks, taking advantage of high global prices.
