May '15
All India pressing figures till April 30, 2015 are approximately 336 lakh bales, while all India arrivals have dropped to approximately 40,000 bales per day.

CCI has sold 6.68 lakh bales through e-auctions out of their procured stock of 86 lakh bales, while the Maharashtra Federation is holding a stock of 4.75 lakh bales procured by them.

According to an Indian Cotton Federation (ICF) report, unsold stocks lying with the ginners and traders are approximately 20 lakh bales.

The increase in duty drawback for garments exporters from 6 to 7.5 per cent and for export of yarn which has been increased from 2.08 to 3.10 per cent will offer boost to industry, it said.

As per trade reports, exports of raw cotton stands at approximately 50 lakh bales and CCI could release more stock to consuming mills to keep cotton lint prices steady.

ICF added that as per reports, CCEA has approved extra funds for government federations and CCI to meet losses on their MSP operations.

Union Cabinet also gave nod for more amendments to Company law with regards to declarations made before commencing business.

Cotton sowing has already begun and there is good demand from farmers for BT and conventional varieties as per reports from many tracts from Northern India.
