Restrictions on cotton exports may go from Oct 1

Cotton producers and exporters in India have reasons to cheer from October 1, 2010. If the Commerce Ministry has its way, restrictions on exports of the white gold will be removed from October 1.

Rahul Khullar, the Secretary of Commerce said this while speaking to reporters, which is in complete contrast to the stand taken by the Textile Ministry.

Khullar was of the opinion that the Commerce Ministry tries to have an unrestricted policy with regards to exports and they would rather have a system where nobody needs to take permission either to import or export.

Initially on April 19, the government stopped registering new cotton exports contracts and at the same time levied an export duty. From May 21 onwards, exports were permitted, but by taking a license from the government.

India has had a bounty cotton crop this year. Estimates of the Cotton Association of India (CAI) place cotton production in the 2009-10 crop year at 30.55 million bales.
