DelhiDesk The Indian government has allowed exports of broken rice to other countries to meet their food security needs, despite the export ban on broken rice that remains in place. In the current financial year, India plans to send around 1.05 million tonnes of foodgrains to Nepal, Indonesia, Senegal and Gambia, including 200,000 tonnes of broken rice to Indonesia, 500,000 tonnes of broken rice to Senegal, and 50,000 tonnes of broken rice to Gambia. India had banned exports of broken rice in September 2022 due to concern over production amid below-average monsoon rainfall in key growing states. India is the world’s second-largest rice producer after China, accounting for 40% of global trade.
