Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar on Friday said a ministerial panel will consider a proposal to levy import tax on wheat.

He also said the slow progress of monsoon rains would not hit farm output.

India's monsoon rains, vital for farm output gains after last year's drought, were 24 percent below normal in the past week and unlikely to rebound in the week ahead, the weather office said on Thursday, raising fears of crop loss.
