Government has doubled the export incentives for onion farmers from existing 5 percent to 10 percent.
This is the result of steep drops in recent weeks in the prices for onions, a staple food in India.
The export incentive for fresh Onions was zero before July, 2018. During July this year, the incentives were introduced at the rate of five percent. The Ministry said, now, with the current increase, Onions enjoy one of the highest incentives for Agro-exports.
