Govt lifts ban on exports of organic non-basmati rice

New Delhi: India has decided to lift the ban on export of organic non-basmati rice, including broken rice, a notification by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade said.

In early September, India banned the export of broken rice as the export policy was amended from “free” to “prohibit”. Also, the Centre had imposed a 20 per cent export duty on non-basmati rice, except non-basmati rice, to boost domestic supply.
The ban is now likely to be lifted following softening in domestic supply prices.
