India has allowed duty-free imports of 2 million tonnes each of crude soy oil and crude sunflower oil for the current and the next fiscal year to March 2024, a government order said on Tuesday, as part of efforts to keep a lid on local prices.
The government is firefighting inflation and trying to control the prices of wheat, cotton, edible oil, pulses, and sugar.
The edible oil cess and duty currently are at 5.5 percent, which has been brought down to nearly zero. Imports have been allowed for 20 lakh tonnes each for crude soy and crude sunflower oil until March 2024.

In the subsequent month, its market share expanded to 58.9 percent, while its peer Air Asia lost its hold over its customers from 6.5 percent in March 2022 to 5.4 percent in April.
