The government has relaxed fumigation condition for imported onions up to 30th of this month to improve its domestic supply and check prices. 

In view of the public concern over high prices of onions, Agriculture Ministry decided to allow relaxation from the condition of fumigation and endorsement on Phytosanitary Certificate for onion imports. The Ministry said, consignments of imported onions which arrive at Indian port without fumigation and endorsement on, Phytosanitary Certificate would be fumigated in India by the importer through an accredited treatment provider.

The consignment would also be inspected thoroughly by quarantine officials and released only if found free from pests and diseases of concern to India. It said,  such consignments of onions will not be subjected to the four times additional inspection fees on account of non-compliance of conditions under the  Plant Quarantine Order, 2003.
