In a notification, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said it has "removed prohibition on export of tur, urad and moong dal till further orders. The ban on these varieties has been lifted with immediate effect".

Exports should be made through customs electronic data interchange (EDI) ports, the notification said.

Exports through Bangladesh and Nepal border will be allowed subject to registration of quantity with the DGFT, it said.
