Iran, which is the largest importer of Basmati Rice from India, follows system of issuance of import permit
to the importers. New system of registration of source (rice mill from exporting country) has been
introduced w.e.f. March 21, 2014. The standards for heavy metals and pesticide residues have been made
more stringent. However, all these measures are not India specific and are followed by Govt. of Iran for
import of rice from all origins.
The duty on import of rice has been increased by Govt. of Iran from 22% to 40% in view of the domestic

Interest Subvention Scheme. The Government provides various incentives like interest subvention from
time to time to promote exports. The forthcoming Foreign Trade Policy (FTP) 2014-2019 would have policy
pronouncements on the various incentives for export, both general and sector specific.
