NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India has been considering measures to cool domestic wheat prices, which jumped to a record high this week as supplies dwindled, Food Secretary Sanjeev Chopra said on Thursday.

The world's second-biggest producer of the grain banned wheat exports in May, but that has failed to stop domestic prices from rising.
