The basic palm oil reference prices are also released weekly, and the proper arrangements are made to facilitate fuel-related matters, the raw material import sector, and the import of spare parts and machines to run the factories as usual. Under the strict supervision, the export earnings were received from the export companies. Moreover, the export earnings were also reduced to 35:65 per cent instead of 50:50 per cent.
The Union minister talked about the permission for fertilizer and insecticide imports using export incomes from rubber export (between 1 December 2023 and 31 March 2024) and fuel and edible oil imports using export incomes from rice, broken rice, beans and pulses and maize export.
