    Pakistan bans onion export to India through land route

    Updated at 1230 PST Thursday, January 06, 2011
    KARACHI: Pakistan on Thursday imposed ban on export of onion through land route i.e Wagha border, while the export of the commodity would continue through sea, Geo News reported.

    According to sources in Ministry of Commerce, authorities concerned will keep vigil on export of onions through sea route so as to control the prices and shortage of it in local market.

    It is pertinent to mention here that price of onion had jumped to Rs80 from Rs45 in the past month.

    Around 60,000 tonnes of onion had been exported to India this season.

    Interestingly, India had banned export of onion and booked orders of the commodity from Pakistan in large quality. It was owing to less yield of crop this season.

    Meanwhile, Pakistan is also facing shortage of onion due to devastating floods that had destroyed crop on thousands of acres.

    pakistani onion are still in yard, they havent came to market. so price fall had nothing to do with it.

    they need clearing and should be in market soon, it cost them 30 rs per kg to get onion to india afetr tax.

    no - its not much to do with the gov but the traders, its the truck , the diesel the middle men - there are atleast 15 people who make profit before it reach u.

    why dont we just give to private firm, they buy directly from farmers and sell.

    --- in azadpur mandi PAYAZ is only 32 rs/kg- if u say - bhai pyaz kitne rupee kilo ,

    but if dress well , and SAY - BA-IYA ONION WHAT PRICE - IT will be 50 rs/kg

    but if i am not wrong that there was some report which said that for evey wallmart employee there will be 4 employed people because of them. And then who can compete with their walmarting in the local area where they make the other small time players go out of buisness by reducing prices to the level of loss.
