Govt permits 2,000 tonnes non-basmati white rice exports

NEW DELHI: The government has permitted exports of 2,000 tonnes of non-basmati white rice to two African nations – Malawi and Zimbabwe.

The export is permitted through National Cooperative Exports Limited (NCEL), the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has said in a notification.

Though exports of non-basmati white rice have been banned since July 20, 2023 to boost domestic supply, exports are allowed on the basis of permission granted by the government to certain countries to meet their food security needs on request.PTI
