India is the largest exporter of onion. In view of the rising onion prices in the country, the central government had banned its export in December 2023. The duration of this ban was till March 31, 2024. After the ban, onion prices in India have come down to less than half the rate. Besides, the new crop of the season has also started arriving in the market. After this, the traders were hopeful that the government would give them good news by removing the ban on onion export.
