Export ban

12th March, 2012: The prohibition on export of cotton (Tariff Codes 5201 and 5203) has been removed.
 
Update 13 September 2012:
 
On 9 April 2012 an informal Group of Ministers chaired by Finance Minister Mukherjee decided that the Government will in fact not accept fresh export contract registrations, but will allow pending exports on the basis of those contracts for which registration requests had been made before 5 March. Therefore, and in practical terms, the export ban effectively turned into an export quota.
