Permission to import 39 thousand tons of onions through Sonamsjid land port

The government has allowed about 39 thousand metric tons of onions to be imported through the Sonamsjid land port of Chapainawabganj. 31 importers of the port can import these onions.

Somir Ghosh, deputy director of Sonamsjid land port’s plant control center, confirmed that 31 importers of Sonamsjid land port have received permission to import onions. They can import 39 thousand metric tons of onions.

Somir Ghosh expressed hope that onion import will start through this port before fasting.

Meanwhile, onions are currently being sold at Tk 105 to Tk 110 per kg in the markets of Chapainawabganj. Traders said that if the import of onion from India starts before fasting, the price will come down.
