Stockholding restrictions for onions extended indefinitely

Nov 28, 2019 12:11 IST

With onion prices  selling at over Rs 100 in retail markets across the country,  the government has extended prohibitions on traders from stocking it, for an indefinite period.

Food and Consumer Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan also said the Centre has banned exports of onion and is importing 1.2 lakh tonnes to control prices. 

The stockholding limit was imposed in September. At present, retailers can stock onion only up to 100 quintals and wholesale traders are allowed to keep up to 500 quintals.
