About 40,000 tonnes of Ukrainian corn had reached the hands of India's state-controlled trader, PEC Ltd, despite claims that it would be challenging to source non-genetically modified (GM) crops.
"PEC has received a cargo of about 40,000 tonnes. Of the contracted 250,000 tonnes, the rest are on their way from Ukraine," said a source directly involved in the deal.
GM food crops is currently not legalised in India.
