  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2021-0102

On August 24, 2021, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce and Industry published a directive in the Gazette of India Extraordinary that will officially permit India to import 1.2 million metric tons (MMT) of soybean meal and soy cake derived from genetically engineered (GE) soybeans through October 31, 2021. The DGFT cites no objection from Ministry of Environment and Forest on the import of soybean meal derived from GE-soybeans as it does not contain any living modified organism (LMO). The Indian government has restricted the imports of GE-soybean meal to containerized shipments through two ports which may limit significant imports within the quota period.
