Latest News: India Allows Export of 75,000 Tons of Non-Basmati Rice to the United Arab Emirates

New Delhi, September 24, 2023 - The Indian government has recently granted permission to export 75,000 tons of non-basmati rice to the United Arab Emirates, in an effort to meet the food security demands of their neighboring nation. This decision was announced by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) on Monday, and the shipment will be facilitated through the National Cooperative Exports Ltd (NCEL).

Despite a ban on rice exports in India, the government has committed to assisting friendly neighboring countries by allowing limited rice exports. This step has been taken to maintain good relations with trading partners and provide support in fulfilling their food requirements.

Previously, the Indian government also permitted the export of broken rice to countries such as Senegal, Gambia, Indonesia, Mali, and Bhutan, in substantial quantities. This is part of India's effort to engage in robust food diplomacy and contribute to global welfare.

In addition to the United Arab Emirates, India has also granted permission for the export of non-basmati rice to other countries such as Bhutan, Mauritius, and Singapore through NCEL. The total volume of non-basmati rice exports permitted by the Indian government has reached a significant amount.

The Indian government's decision to allow rice exports comes after a series of earlier export restrictions. In September of last year, the government banned the export of broken rice to control rising retail prices and ensure an adequate domestic supply. Furthermore, in July of this year, India also banned the export of non-basmati white rice to keep retail prices stable during the upcoming holiday season.

These measures reflect India's commitment to maintaining domestic food price stability while supporting trading partner nations in meeting their needs.
