Indian Agricultural Trade Performance of Pulses, Spices and Cashew under WTO Regime

Sunil Phougat


The present paper is an attempt to examine the Indian agricultural trade performance of pulses, spices and cashew under WTO regime. The analysis shows that, in the case of pulses, India exported a small amount in the year 1999-00 & 2000-01 only. In the whole study period, pulses imported at large level. Exports of traditional items from India like spices could keep pace but not in case of cashew. To sum up, it may conclude that India has been profited in such a traditional item like spices to a great extent. Trade performance of the commodities has been outstanding and it has been favorable for India that it has accessed new markets for its traditional products. But, in case of pulses, the import is growing in terms of volume and value which is important to considerable under WTO regime. It is suggested that Indian agricultural trade may witness a surge if India plans to export not only raw agricultural produces, but also focus on exporting processed food products and semi-finished goods.
