New Delhi: The government on Tuesday removed export curbs on medical goggles and gloves, which were in demand due to the C-19 pandemic, to boost outbound shipments of these products.

The export restrictions were imposed on account of the spread of C-19.

“The export policy of medical goggles and Nitrile / NBR gloves is amended from restricted to free category making all types of medical goggles and Nitrile / NBR gloves freely exportable,” the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.

In a separate notification, DGFT said import of copra is allowed through government-run trading firm MMTC, while import of coconut oil is permitted through STEs (state trading enterprises) except STC (State Trading Corporation).
