Description
Extended the period in which government parastatal entities can apply for the importation of 500 000 tonnes of maize at zero duty under the Indian fiscal year 2016/17 (from March 31, 2016 to August 8, 2016) tariff rate quota. The extension follows concern expressed by local starch and poultry industries over rising maize prices.
