Minimum Export Price Of Onion Fixed At $850

Minimum Export Price Of Onion Fixed At $850”

The government has notified Minimum Export Price of onion at 850 dollars per tonne to ensure its availability in the domestic market.

Minimum Export Price is the minimum rate below which exports are not allowed. Farmers, however, are concerned that the decision could affect the price of kharif-season onions when their arrival picks up from the second half of December. However, with Pakistan banning onion exports and the overall price of the bulb in the worldwide market being high, import in large quantities was not feasible.

Summary: The retail prices of good quality onions in Nashik have touched Rs 50 per kg, while the retail prices in major cities like Mumbai and Delhi have reached up to Rs 60 per kg.

The Government has also asked state-run Metals and Minerals Trading Corporation of India (MMTC) for importing 2,000 tonnes of onion, whereas other agencies such as Small Farmers' Agri Business Consortium (SFAC) and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (Nafed) to source onions from the domestic market for supplying in consuming areas. This led to a rise in onion exports during fiscal 2016-17.The average wholesale onion prices have increased thrice in the past two months from Rs 1,250 per quintal on September 19 to Rs 3,200 per quintal on November 23 due to short supply.

Onion exports during April-July rose 56% from a year earlier to 1.2 million tonnes. Also, the new 2017-18 kharif crop - which is being harvested - is expected to be less owing to fall in acreage. The kharif crop, however, can not be stored.
