Export of onion consignments stuck at port can be approved: Sources
Kolkata. Stops of onion at ports may be exempted from export restrictions. Sources in the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) informed this on Friday. Sources said that DGFT has probably given instructions to the customs department to approve the cargo which has reached the port.
However, no such instruction has been given for stranded cargo on the way. However, there is some confusion among exporters regarding exemption from restrictions and its basis. "We are unsure whether all cargo reaching the ports will be allowed for export or only those who have received Late Export Order (LEO)," said a businessman.
