Subject: Govt allows import of 17,000 ton/yr green areca nut without MIP condition from Bhutan
The government on Wednesday allowed the import of 17,000 tonnes of green areca nut without minimum import price (MIP) condition from Bhutan every year. In 2017, the government imposed MIP at Rs 251 per kg with an aim to safeguard domestic farmers. In 2018, the imports of areca nut in any form were allowed if the price is over Rs 251 per kilogram.

However, imports are banned if the price is below the threshold. The minimum import price (MIP) is the rate below which no imports are allowed.
According to a notification of the directorate general of foreign trade (DGFT), imports from Bhutan are permitted through the land customs station of Jaigaon (INJIGB).

It is also subject to a valid registration certificate issued by the DGFT for imports.

"Import of 17,000 tonnes of fresh (green) areca nut without minimum import price condition shall be allowed from Bhutan every year through LCS Jaigaon (INJIGB), subject to valid registration certificate issued by the DGFT," the notification said.

The directorate has also notified the procedure for the registration certificate.

In a public notice, it said that for the second half of 2022-23, a pro-rata quantity of 8,500 MT of fresh (green) areca nut may be imported without MIP from Bhutan.

For 2023-24, a total of 17,000 MTs may be imported, it said.

Before imports, an importer will have to seek a registration certificate (RC) from the DGFT.

Under an RC, the maximum quantity allowed is 500 MTs.

The importer can apply for additional quantities once the quantities already registered have been duly imported.

"RC shall be valid for a maximum period of 6 months or the end of the financial year, whichever is earlier," it added.

Karnataka is the largest producer of areca nut, followed by Kerala and Assam.

SAFTA was implemented in 2006 between India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
