If India wants to create as significantly edible oil as it is consuming as a result of its customarily-developed oilseeds, the region may want at least 30 million hectares of spot for cultivating them and this is next not possible, said observed agricultural economist Ashok Gulati on Wednesday.
India at the moment fulfills 65 for every cent of its edible oil wants as a result of imports.
