Government took these decisions after onion shortage across the country

Onion prices are constantly increasing, in such a situation, the government has banned the export of onion.

30th September, 2019

Onion prices are constantly increasing, in such a situation, the government has banned the export of onions . Prices have risen sharply after onion shortage across the country. The Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry has revised the export policy of onion till further orders.

Recently, Union Food Supply Minister Ram Vilas Paswan had said that the Center has sufficient stock of onions and is going to supply it to various states, which will bring down prices.

The government has set a storage limit for the wholesale and retail traders of onions. State governments have been asked to implement stock limits and take stern action against onion hoarders. For retail traders, the limit of onion storage has been fixed to 100 quintals, while wholesalers will be able to keep stock of onions up to 500 quintals. With a view to increasing the availability of onion domestically, onion exports have been banned.

There is currently no hope of relief from the rising prices of onions. NITI Aayog member Ramesh Chand had said recently that people are expected to get relief from the increased prices only after the new Kharif crop comes to market after November. To curb the rising prices, the central government has started selling onions from its buffer stock at successful stores of NAFED, NCCF and Mother Dairy besides selling onions through mobile vans at Rs 24 a kg.

According to sources, the government has a buffer stock of 50,000 tonnes. Out of this, 15,000 tonnes of onions have already been sold. After the new kharif crop comes to market in early November, prices are likely to return to normal levels again.
