Cabinet likely to clear policy to boost exports of agri commodities
Dec 06, 2018
The Union Cabinet is expected to approve Thursday a policy to boost exports of agriculture commodities such as tea, coffee and rice and increase the country's share in global agri trade, an official said.
The Commerce Ministry has sent the final agri export policy to the Cabinet.
The proposed policy would focus on all aspects of agricultural exports including modernising infrastructure, standardisation of products, streamlining regulations, curtailing knee-jerk decisions, and focusing on research and development activities.
The government will aim at a stable export policy for agricultural products. There will be an assurance that processed agri items and organic products will not be brought under the ambit of any kind of export restrictions such as imposition of minimum import price, export duty, export bans and quota restrictions, the official said.
The official added that the implementation of the policy will have an estimated financial implication of over Rs 1400 crore.
The states would be urged to reform their APMC (Agriculture Produce Market Committee) Acts and remove mandi taxes applicable on export-oriented goods.
On the infrastructure front, the government would identify ports that are handling agri exports and perishable berths, agri jetties, railways wagons would be provided.
Round-the-clock single window clearance would be extended for perishable exports and imports at Mumbai, Delhi and Kochi airports.
