Description
Lowered the minimum export price for packaged and branded edible oil.
Notes
The government decided to reduce the minimum export price for packaged and branded edible oil from USD 1 100 to USD 900 per tonne. Shipments of branded consumer packs of up to 5 kg were liberalized in 2013 – subject to minimum export prices (see also MPPU May’14). India’s ban on bulk exports of vegetable oil remains in place.
