The excitement was there for Andhra Tender and the tenders were for 53k yesterday, the lowest price in tender was 1260 and the highest price was 1355 per quintal. Now the question remains will the government award the tender or like Telangana there will be a rebidding process. Markets were fairly quiet and there were some very miniscule quantities of arrival in Madhya Pradesh with high moisture percent. Market expects the arrivals in yards about end sep or I week October. What is the state government’s view and proposed actions will decide the price scenario for the markets in the kharif crop. Till now we have no update regarding the same.
