Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister of India Piyush Goyal met Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde in Delhi on August 22. The meeting was to discuss a strategy to control the soaring prices of onion. Union Minister Piyush Goyal informed that NCCF and NAFED will be soon purchasing onions from Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat and other areas where onions are grown so that farmers get the right price for their produce. “We all know that in the past few days, as per the orders by Government of India, NAFED and NCCF purchased 3 lakh tons of onion from Nashik, Lasalgaon, Ahmednagar and this region. 40 per cent export tax has been imposed on onion so that there is an adequate quantity of onion available in India. From 11 am today, NCCF and NAFED will begin the purchase of 2 lakh more tons of onion from Nashik, Pimpalgaon, Lasalgaon, Ahmednagar and the entire region. More purchases will be made in the future if needed.

The price for purchase today has been decided to be Rs 2410 per quintal. No farmer needs to worry,” said Piyush Goyal.
