Indian government to buy 300,000 tons of onions in Rabi season

Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday announced that the government agencies will buy 300,000 tons of onions once the winter harvest starts coming in. Goyal, who handles the Consumer Affairs, Food and Public distribution portfolio, said that last year, the overall buying of the rabi harvest stood at 250,000 tons.

He added that the National Cooperative Consumers Federation and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (Nafed) have also been instructed to pick up 'late kharif' harvest stocks, but are not finding the produce in the markets now.
