Indian Domestic Prices And Export Of Agricultural Commodities
Some economists, who favoured free trade, had predicted that world prices would rise after UR agreement and with establishment of WTO, but the factual position is quite different. Since 1995, world whole sale prices of commodities are falling at the rate ranging 1 to 17%. Secondly Indian commodity prices are rising at the rate of 1 to 7% . Minimum support price given to some commodities is rising at the rate of 5-7%. The trend growth of agricultural commodities prices appear to be same as rupee devaluation. As the rupee depreciates, the domestic whole sale prices are appreciating, this in turn affects our competitiveness. Price rise equivalent to the rate of rupee depreciation cannot be ignored.
