Onions at Rs. 35 a kg: Govt may step in to control prices

NDTV (Feb. 1, 2013) | Concerned about the 57 per cent jump in onion prices in just one month across the country, the government is reportedly considering re-introducing a Minimum Export Price (MEP) to discourage onion exports. In May 2012, the government had abolished the MEP regime to help Indian traders take advantage of rising onion prices in the global markets.
