India extends broken rice exports to Senegal and Gambia until November 30

The government has extended the deadline for exporting broken rice through NCEL to Senegal and Gambia by six more months, up to November 30.

India has agreed to send broken rice to these two African nations after they requested help. Originally, the Centre had banned broken rice exports on September 8, 2022. However, on May 24, this was amended to allow exports to countries requiring support for food security, based on their government’s request.

In a recent update to the notification from November 30, 2023, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade announced that the period for “export of broken rice for the quantity already notified to Senegal and Gambia through NCEL has been extended for a further six months up to November 30, 2024.”
