NEW DELHI : India on Monday said that it has allowed the export of 75,000 tonnes of non-Basmati white rice to the UAE.

In a notification, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said: “Export of 75,000 MT of non-Basmati white rice to the UAE is permitted through National Cooperative Exports Limited.”

India exported $2.2 billion of non-Basmati white rice in FY23 of which Kenya, Madagascar, Benin and the UAE were among the top destinations.

In July, India prohibited the export of non-basmati white rice but said that exports will be allowed on the basis of permission granted by the government to other countries to meet their food security needs and based on the request of their governments.

Last month, the country decided to allocate export quotas of non-basmati white rice to Bhutan, Mauritius and Singapore. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade, in a statement, said that exports of 79,000 metric tons of non-basmati white rice would be allowed to Bhutan, 50,000 tons to Singapore and 14,000 tons to Mauritius.
