On September 29, the Indian government banned the export of onion with immediate effect till further order in order to improve the domestic availability of onions, for what they said it was casting an adverse impact on Bangladesh’s domestic market with excessive price.

 A revenue officer at Hili Noor Amin said: "The customs station kept operating at the request of business people of the two countries even on the weekend."

The entry of these onion-laden trucks are operating under the already opened LCs (Letter of Credits), which is set to allow to keep the onion market stable in Bangladesh, he added.
