India extends duty benefit for export of non-basmati rice

Rice is India's main kharif crop. Rice output is estimated at record 99.24 million tonnes as against 97.5 million tonnes of production in last year's kharif season.

Meanwhile, India is one of the largest exporters of non-basmati rice and in 2017-18, the country exported 8.63 million tonnes of the rice, which was more than double the quantity of basmati rice exports of 4.05 million tonnes.


To boost the shipment of the agricultural commodity, the government has extended duty benefits to non-basmati rice exporters under a scheme, which is provided under the commerce ministry's Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS).


"Non-basmati rice items have been made eligible for MEIS benefits at the rate of 5 percent for exports made with effect from November 26 and up to March 25, 2019," the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has said in a public notice.
