Farmers and businessmen in Maharashtra's Nashik are not happy with the decision of the Central government after they banned export of all varieties of onions. Central government on September 14 banned export of all varieties of onions except those cut, sliced or broken in powder form, with immediate effect. Businessmen are angry as they can't keep stock of onions because of export ban in India. The move was apparently aimed at increasing domestic supply and reducing prices of onions. The Ministry of Commerce and Industry yesterday stated, "In exercise of the power conferred by Section 3 of the Foreign Trade (Development and Regulation) Act, 1992, as amended, read with para 1.02 and 2.01 of the Foreign Trade Policy, 2015-20, the Central Government hereby makes the following amendment in the Export policy of the onions. For the item description at Serial Number 51 and 52 of Chapter 7 of Schedule 2 of ITC (HS) Classification of Export and Import items, with immediate effect. The ban includes Bangalore rose onions and Krishnapuram onions."
