The estimated increment in the export of rice for this year is 50 per cent. Last year in December, it was reported that the export of rice increased by 30 per cent, he claimed.

However, the numbers have increased to up to 40 per cent by now, the analyst added. Till February, exports amounting to 2.14 cr tn was done.

Earlier, India used to mostly supply basmati rice to the parts of the middle-east region. However, in the last few quarters, India has started to export broken rice as well in parts of Bangladesh and China.

The increase in export is also considered to be due to the increasing tension between Russia and Ukraine. India also exports rice to Sri Lanka and Nepal.

But Nepal and Sri Lanka have started to put a ban on many imports. But so far, the numbers have been good for rice exports.

On a global level, India offers the cheapest broken rice. In Thailand, the broken rice is priced at 431 USD per million tons. In the US, the price of broken rice is approximately 650 USD per million tons. But in India, the cost of the same broken rice is around 343 USD per million tons, Dubey claimed.

This is the reason for the positive rally seen in the rice stocks, he added.

Market expert Sumeet Bagadia suggested investors hold their positions in the KRBL Limited. Bagadia recommended buying the stocks at current levels, and the first target he suggested was Rs255- Rs 252, and the second target he gave was Rs 275 – Rs280 with a stop loss of Rs 230 – Rs 235.
