May '13
The All India kappas arrivals have dropped to 70,000 bales per day. Local mills were very cautious in their procurement of cotton.

Textile Mills are requesting the Government to instruct CCI to sell the cotton stock with them to domestic Mills so they could procure good quality at market prices. CCI has requested the Government to allow them to export 10 lakh bales from their stock of 25 lakh bales.

Mills were going through a difficult phase as domestic yarn markets are sluggish. Export enquiries in yarn too are poor. Power problem is the big draw back to the profitability of the mills in this region.Dch-32 cotton is arriving in some pockets surrounding Salem at centres like Attur, Uthangarai and Boothapadi. There is a mixing of Surabhi cotton by traders to reduce the cost and is being sold at Rs.51,500/-Spot per candy.
International cotton prices seem to be easing a bit right now due to the financial tightness and fall in various commodities like crude, gold etc.
