India allows precontracted unions to Bangladesh
India has decided to allow export of some quantity of onions which was handed over to customs on the date imposing ban on onion export.
The ban will not be applicable for those pro-contracted shipments and necessary directives have been given to allow such eligible consignments, according to Indian Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
But there will be no more new contract henceforth until the notification is revised, a senior official told UNB.
The Indian government imposed the ban on onion export on September 14.
The data of onions lying for exports in various custom ports of India was provided and from the data shared, it appears that some quantity of onions was already handed over to customs on the date of notification (export ban).
The restrictions imposed on export shall not be applicable to consignments already handed over to Customs for examination and subsequent exports up to public notice or notification date, reads an official communication.
