Government Lifts Export Ban On Onions


The government on Monday lifted the export ban on all varieties of onions with effect from Jan. 1 next year.

In September, the government had prohibited the exports due to spurt in prices.

"The export of all varieties of onions...has been made free with effect from Jan.1, 2021," the Directorate General of Foreign Trade said in a notification.

The DGFT, an arm of the commerce ministry, deals with exports and imports-related issues.
