India allowed two state-run trading companies to import 100,000 tonnes of corn at a concessional 15 percent import tax, the government said on June 14, as prices of the animal feed jumped in the south Asian country because of drought.

State-run MMTC and NAFED were each allowed to import 50,000 tonnes of corn for poultry firms in the 2019-20 financial year starting on April 1, it said in a statement.

India, the world's seventh-biggest corn producer, otherwise imposes a 60 percent import tax on the grain.
