MUMBAI, Jan 29 (Reuters) - India’s state-run trading company PEC has issued a global tender to export 125,000 tonnes of milling wheat for shipment between Feb. 20 and March 31, a company statement said on Tuesday.
The stocks would be made available at Krishnapatnam port on the east coast. The bid closes on Feb. 18, it said.
This is part of a continuing Indian government programme to cut huge wheat stocks, taking advantage of current high global grain prices. (Reporting by Deepak Sharma; Editing by Jijo Jacob)
