A senior executive from India who is responsible for cotton purchasing for a big textile conglomerate informed Dr. Seshadri Ramkumar that the Textile Commissioner's office, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India has approved the export of 3.9 million bales (170 kg/ bale) as of Monday.

The Textile Commissioner's office has received applications for exporting 5.5 million bales which is the upper limit set by Government of India. The executive informed Dr. Ramkumar that, baring a few rejections from Commissioner's office, he expects that the traders from India will export maximum amount.

According to the senior executive, Sankar 6 variety reached the spot price of Rs. 41,500 per candy (356 kg) last Thursday/ Friday. On Monday (October 18) the spot price ranged between Rs. 40,200- 40,500 per candy. The senior executive also commented on the arrival of cotton which is going smoothly given that the monsoon is on its last leg.

Although, it was raining in Mumbai on Monday, harvesting is progressing in Northern states of Punjab and Haryana and the Western states of Gujarat and Maharashtra.

Within two weeks time, cotton will start arriving from the Southern state of Andhra Pradesh. Another leading cotton exporter who is also on the board of the Cotton Association of India, while speaking to Dr. Ramkumar indicated that the nominal price of cotton to be shipped from ports in India on November 1st is $1.25 per pound. Currently, the production estimate for 2010- 11 season by the Cotton Association of India is 345 lakh bales (34.5 million bales of 170 kg each).

However, the Cotton Advisory Board (CAB) of India has estimated the production to be 32.548 million bales. The CAB in its last meeting on August 27 has estimated the mill consumption in 2010-11 to be 22.15 million bales and the total consumption which includes textile mills, small scale units and non-mill consumption to be 26.6 million bales.

It is not clear whether the Cotton Association of India will release a new crop output soon. A clear picture will evolve after Diwali festivities after the first week of November 2010. A general consensus in India is that the crop is going to be big, this season.
