In the light of public concern over high prices of onions in the market, Ministry of Agriculture has decided to allow relaxation from the condition of fumigation and endorsement on phytosanitary certificate (PSC) as per the Plant Quarantine Order, 2003 for onion imports upto November 30, 2019 on few conditions.

Such consignments of imported onions which arrive in Indian port without fumigation and endorsement to that effect on the PSC, would be fumigated in India by the importer through an accredited treatment provider. The consignment would be inspected thoroughly by quarantine officials and released only if found free from pests and diseases of concern to India.

Such consignments of onions for consumption will not be subjected to the four times additional inspection fees on account of non compliance of conditions of import under the PQ Order, 2003.
