Sale of Cotton - Export Sales

In the 1980s and upto mid 1990s when the country had surplus cotton for export, CCI had the distinction of single largest exporter of cotton from the country in terms of export quotas allotted by Government from time to time. While the benefits of such large scale exports were passed on to the cotton growers in the form of remunerative prices for their kapas produce, CCI also struck a close rapport with overseas buyers through supply of bulk quantities of quality cotton within the shipment schedules. Since cotton season 2001-02, exports of cotton have been placed under OGL in consistency with WTO Rules and feasibility of exports from the country is now directly linked to producing surplus cotton with parity in prices and quality of international standards. Since 2004-05, with increased cotton production in the country, cotton exports from the country are again surging ahead and CCI having own infrastructure, export experiences, as well as confidence of the overseas buyers, is availing all export opportunities with special emphasis on neighbouring Bangla Desh and countries in the Far East. While fulfilling its export commitment, CCI pursues mainly the following objectives:

  • To ensure a remunerative prices to the cotton growers
  • To bring about stability in the domestic market
  • To install confidence among overseas buyers as a reliable shipper of quality cotton

For making all shipment strictly within the schedules, CCI has constructed a most modern godown complex at Kalamboli, near JNPT Port at Navi Mumbai.
