India allows broken rice exports to meet other nations’ food security needs.
May 26, 2023

The government on Wednesday allowed the exports of broken rice on the basis of permission given by the government for shipments to other countries for meeting their food security needs, though the export of broken rice is banned in general.
'The export policy of broken rice is prohibited, however, export will be allowed on the basis of permission granted by the Government of India to other countries to meet their food security needs and based on the request of their government,' the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.
India had banned the exports of broken rice and imposed a 20% duty on exports of various grades in September.
In December last year, it allowed the exports of organic non-Basmati rice including organic non-Basmati broken rice.
China is the largest importer of Indian broken rice at $418.29 million in FY23 followed by Senegal, Indonesia and Vietnam.
