State-owned MMTC has issued a contract for buying an additional 4,000 tonnes of onions from Turkey, The Business Line reported, citing an official statement.

This would be in addition to over 17,000 tonnes — 11,000 tonnes from Turkey and 6,090 tonnes from Egypt — for which the orders have already been placed.

Besides, the Department of Consumer Affairs has directed MMTC to come out with three more tenders to import 5,000 tonnes of the bulbs each. While two of them would be country-specific — from Turkey and the European Union — the third would a global tender, the statement said.
