17/2/05 India - IN RAISING THE Customs duty on the palm group of oils by15 percentage points and reducing their tariff values to reflectinternational market conditions, the Government has in one masterstroketried to balance the interests of oilseed growers and consumers. Whetherthe Finance Minister, Mr P. Chidambaram, could have waited to make thechanges a part of the around-the-corner Budget may be debatable; but therationale of his action cannot be faulted. Indeed, it is positive for allstakeholders, including growers, consumers and processing industry. Whilethe changes are revenue positive, they are nearly neutral as far asconsumer prices are concerned. The psychological effect of the duty hikeis sure to support rapeseed/mustard prices that have been ruling wellbelow the minimum support price of Rs 1,700 a quintal. The processingindustry can have nothing to complain about because it will recover theadditional duty burden from consumers. So far so good.
