Thus, the country's authorities expect to contain prices in the domestic market, Xinhua reported.
The Indian government has decided to import about 30 thousand tons of potatoes from Bhutan. The Ministry of Consumers, Food and Public Distribution said the authorities are taking active steps to curb potato prices.
The government's official statement also indicated that the import duty on potatoes has been cut from 30% to 10%.
Recall, meanwhile, the Indian government also plans to import 25 tons of onions. Earlier, India banned the export of onion seeds amid rising prices for onions in the domestic market.
