 Indian has increased the export price of per metric ton onion to $750 from $250 that led to the stoppage of onion import from India, reports Jago News.
 Following the stoppage of onion export by India, more than 100 trucks loaded with onion and 42 wagons tagged with three trains carrying onions remain stranded at Petrapole opposite Bangladesh’s Benapole border post.  On Monday, the Onion Exporters Organization stopped the export after the entry of 50 truck onions through Benapole port.
 The Indian traders said they had to raise the price three times due to shortage of onion in Indian local markets. Bangladeshi traders alleged the Indian government had done this every time, not to speak of onion, they do it for other food items too.
Meanwhile, India’s decision has impacted the local market in Bangladesh. Buyers complained that hoarders have raised the onion price through a syndicate though there is enough stock of onion.
