India Govt allows export of 84,000 tons of rice
New Delhi (PTI): The government on Friday allowed shipment of 84,000 tons of rice to Comoros, Madagascar and Mauritius, making an exemption to the ban on non-Basmati rice exports.

"The prohibition imposed on export of non-Basmati rice shall not be applicable to export of 50,000 tons of rice to Madagascar through STC, and 25,000 tons of rice to Comoros and 9,000 tons of rice to Mauritius through MMTC," the Director General of Foreign Trade said in a notification.

On October 9, 2007, the government had banned export of non-Basmati rice so as to build buffer stock and improve domestic supplies. Following complaints from exporters, the ban was partially lifted on October 25, by fixing the minimum export price (MEP) at 425 dollar per tonne.

However, the government raised MEP of rice to 500 dollar per tonne during the last week of December 2007 to discourage exports.

India exported 3.7 million tons of non-Basmati rice worth Rs 4,258 crore in 2006-07, accounting for a bulk of the total rice exports, including Basmati.
