Export ban on alcohol-based hand sanitisers lifted


New Delhi, October 15

The government on Thursday lifted all restrictions on export of alcohol-based hand sanitisers.

“The export of alcohol based hand sanitisers in container with dispenser pumps is free for export making export of alcohol based hand sanitizers in any form/packaging freely exportable, with immediate effect,” the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.

Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the government had banned export of all types of sanitisers in March, but limited the restriction in May to only alcohol-based sanitisers.

In June, the government further relaxed the export restrictions and limited the ban on alcohol-based hand sanitisers to only those in containers with dispenser pumps. — PTI
