Govt revokes its decision to allow import of peppercorns, peas, dates and betel nuts

KATHMANDU: The government scrapped its earlier decision to allow the import of peppercorns, peas, dates and betel nuts, following concerns from various quarters on the possible ‘policy corruptions’ by the top government officials.

Last month, the government conditionally eased the restriction on the import of peppercorns, peas, dates and betel nuts. The government had completely banned the imports of these four goods since March 2020.

Through publishing a notice in Nepal Gazette dated March 22, the government halted the quota provision on the import of these items. In addition, the Department of Commerce, Supplies and Consumer Protection issued a public notice on Thursday.
