  • In the intro, mention the recently imposed export ban on wheat.
  • In the body, mention India’s increase in rice export to 21 MMT, which is around 40 per cent of global market. As a result of this high export price of rice decreases in the market. As a result India has to export more rice for the same amount. Also, there is issue of subsidies artificially making the Indian rice artificially competitive. Also mention the issue of water export. In the suggestion mention need for optimum tax, checking the leakage from PDS etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for shifting to the other crops from rice.
