Local textile units procured around 11.070 million bales of cotton from the ginners, while around 276,018 bales were sold to the exporters. 
Mr. Kumar said they were expecting cotton output for the season to remain below the Government set target of 12.5 million bales, however the actual output now seems to be reaching 13 million bales.
Housing around one-third of the 1,200 ginning factories operational in the country, Punjab and Sindh each contributed 9.257 million bales and 3.376 million bales to the total output for the period, while Balochistan contributed 53.025 bales.
