Bangladeshi traders have started to import onions from India through Benapole Land Port after a restriction of two months, reports UNB.

The import cost per kg of onion is Tk 34. The cooking essential is being sold at the market at Tk 36 per kg.

Importers said the prices of onions will drop further as the import volume goes up.

Bangladesh imported 117 tonnes of onions from India Thursday afternoon.

Shamim Gazi, an importer of Benapole said, “My company imported 117 tonnes of onions from India as the government had allowed us to do so.”

Benapole port deputy director Abdul Jalil said now the port is open 24 hours for quick unloading of the imported onions.
