Indian cotton arrivals less than last year

“On an all India basis, cotton arrival is less this time than last year. Last year by December 18, 10 million bales (1 bale = 170 kg) arrived in the whole Indian market. Correspondingly this year the arrival is just 7.36 million bales”, said a top official of North India Cotton Association.

Mr. Rakesh Rathi, President, North India Cotton Association said, “Other than North, all other centres like South and Central India; the arrival percentage is comparatively less. When we compare last year's arrival in Northern India, it was around 1.86 million bales whereas this year it is only 1.70 million bales.

He further said, “In Central India, which comprises of Gujarat, Maharashtra and MP, arrival last year was 6.11 million bales, which is around 4.12 million bales in the current year. In Southern India, this year it is 1.31 million bales against 1.88 million bales last year.

“So, Central India has lowest arrival compared to last year. If we compare on all India basis, arrival in the North is higher than other parts of the country. But, when we compare with last year, we are still lagging behind.

“Due to uncertain rains in various areas of central and southern India, the crop size has been affected. Instead of 35.6 million bales, Indian crop size may be around 33 million bales. It may be 2.5 million bales lower as compared to earlier estimates”, he concluded by saying.

Mr. Bhagwan Das Bansal, President - Punjab Cotton Factories and Ginners Association said, “Last year cotton arrival was around 32.5 million bales in India. This year the crop estimate is of around 35.5 million bales. But in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra, the yield is less and the quality is also inferior due to heavy rains in AP and other factors”.

He added, “Due to this, the estimated crop will be around 32.5 million bales only, not more. Nearly, 10 million bales will be exported this year as against 8-8.5 million bales export last year. 30% crop has already arrived”.

“There is an increase in price of cottonseed (kapas) by Rs. 300/quintal. The reason being the appreciation of dollar due to which there is rise in cotton seed oil in international market. Moreover, demand for yarn has also increased in international market. Ginned cotton prices have thus increased by Rs. 500/quintal”, he winded up by saying.
