With surplus stocks, India has asked to explore the possibility of importing the grain in large quantities from the country.

India, the world's second-largest producer, is grappling with problem of plenty after an estimated record output of 90.23 million tonne in the 2011-12 crop year (July-June).

“I made a suggestion to Malaysia to consider importing wheat in bulk from India,” Food Minister said after meeting Malaysia’s plantation industries and commodities minister.
