India Govt Jun 1 wheat stocks 33.4 million tonne, up 2.4% from a year ago.

The government had 33.4 million tonne wheat in its stocks as of Jun 1, up from 32.6 million tonne a year ago. Government stocks have risen due to higher procurement this year. Larger purchases by government are likely to take wheat stocks in central pool to a comfortable situation this year after they fall to multi-year low last year.
