Govt bans export of green chili, eggplant, onion, garlic

The government has barred export of green chili, eggplant, onion and garlic to ensure smooth supply of these essentials in the market during the holy month of Ramadan.

“The export ban will be there till August 31,” said an official of the Commerce Ministry on Monday.

The government took the decision as the demand for these essentials rises sharply during Ramadan.
