NEW DELHI, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- India has extended the ban on sugar exports by one year till October-end next year, an official at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry confirmed Saturday.

A notification in this regard was issued by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) Friday.

"The Central government hereby extends the date of restriction on export of sugar, including raw sugar, refined sugar and white sugar, beyond October 31 till October 31, 2023, or until further orders, whichever is earlier," said the DGFT notification.

It further added that this restriction is not applicable to sugar being exported to the European Union and the United States.
