The Wagh Bakri is noted to sell around 2.8 crore kg of tea per annum and it has been selling its product to different areas in India
like Maharashtra, Madhaya Pradesh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Today, India is producing 98 crore kg of tea unually where they export around 18 crore kg. The exporting of teas cannot be stop since the government has made a lot of efforts in order for these exports to take place.

What is more doable is the reduction of duty on imports. There have been a lot of factors why the production of tea in India had some problems which the government should really look into and find some alternatives on how to solve the problem with supply and demand of tea.
