New Delhi, Mar 31 The Union government allowed unrestricted exports of all certified organic agricultural products, a move that would help in boosting shipments.

The decision in this regard was taken in the meeting of the cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The CCEA “has given its approval for removal of all quantitative ceilings on individual organic products and allowed unrestricted exports of all organic agricultural and organic processed products irrespective of any existing or future restriction/prohibition on the export of their basic product (non-organic)”.

However, the government said in view of acute shortage in the country, the quantitative ceiling on shipments of organic pulses and lentils will continue.

But the ceiling was enhanced from 10,000 tonnes to 50,000 tonnes.
