Import ban

On 5 October 2012, the Government of India announced an increase in the number of countries, from which the import of poppy seeds is permitted. The number of countries that are granted permission increased from 11 to 16.
The new countries are: United Kingdom, Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, Macedonia, Germany, Slovakia and Ukraine.
The countries from which imports were allowed previously were Australia, Austria, France, China, Hungry, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and Czech Republic. Slovenia is no longer allowed to export poppy seeds to India.
This new measure amounts, therefore, to the elimination of an import ban from five trading partners.
