New Delhi. Due to the fall in the prices of edible oils in foreign markets, the pressure on imported oils as well as all indigenous oil-oilseeds in the Delhi oil-oilseed market last week, due to which mustard, groundnut, soybean oil-oilseed, cottonseed, crude palm oil (CPO) , Palmolein oil prices declined. Sources in the market said that the fall in the prices of edible oils in foreign markets put pressure on all oil-oilseeds prices, but despite this there is no relief to the consumers. The reason for this is the ‘quota system’ adopted by the government in relation to oil imports. After the implementation of the quota system, the rest of the imports have come to a standstill, due to the low supply situation in the market, sunflower and soybean oil consumers have to buy them at a higher price than before.

According to news agency PTI, last year the difference between the prices of soybean and palmolein used to be Rs 10-12, has increased to around Rs 40 per kg this year. Palmolein has become so cheap that no other oil can survive in front of it. This is the reason that despite the demand of winter, the prices of edible oils are going down under heavy pressure.

Sources said that this is the situation in Cottonseed. One, the markets abroad are broken and farmers are bringing less arrivals to the mandis for sale at a cheap rate. Because of this the ginning mills which separate cotton and narma from cottonseed are not running. The condition of small industries is very bad. The quota system does not seem to provide any relief to the farmers, the oil industry and the consumers.

Quota system not getting expected results
Sources said that the most important thing for the country is the farmer, followed by the consumer and then the oil industry. Big oil organizations should play an important role in maintaining proper harmony in the interests of all these. But the quota system is not giving the expected results, that is, instead of getting cheaper, the prices of edible oils have become costlier. There is a need to reconsider this. It is the responsibility of the major oil organizations of the country to tell the ground reality to the government and give advice about the proper way. According to sources, to become self-sufficient in edible oil, the government will have to make a lot of efforts and for this it is most important not to open futures trading of edible oils.
