Fresh wheat crop is expected to come by mid-March. It has been experienced when there is price-rise the benefit is taken by the traders and consumers are exploited. However, when fresh crop hits the market prices fall and the farmers have to take the loss. The Government will take all necessary steps to ensure payment of MSP to farmers and may review the import duty on wheat if required.
