India: India Bans the Export of Non-Basmati White Rice

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2023-0059

On July 20, 2023, the India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI)/Directorate General of Foreign Trade issued Notification No. 20/2023 – Amendment in Export Policy of Non-basmati Rice under Harmonized System (HS) Code 1006.30.90. The Indian government is banning with immediate effect the export of non-basmati, white (NBW) rice (semi-milled or wholly milled, whether polished or not, glazed: other). India is already effectively banning the export of broken rice (HS code 1006.40.00). The export bans in place for NBW and broken rice, together accounted for nearly 45 percent of India’s total rice exports in calendar year (CY) 2022 (January-December). To date, however, there has been no change in the export policy in place for non-basmati parboiled rice (HS code 1006.30.10) and basmati rice (HS code 1006.30.20), which together account for the balance of rice exports.
