In a decision that could soften prices of the bulb considerably, Pakistan’s Ministry of Food and Agriculture has agreed to the move to continue onion exports to India.

This is due to adequate production of the vegetable despite the floods that devastated agricultural lands across Pakistan last year, an official of the ministry told PTI.

However, the Commerce and Foreign Ministries here are opposed to onion exports, he said.

Sources in the Indian High Commission confirmed that there has been no movement of onion consignment since the ban was imposed by Pakistani authorities last week.
