In the first five months of the current fiscal year, 63.1 million kg of soybean oil worth Rs 9.10 billion has been exported to India from Birgunj. Fourteen industries in the Bara Parsa Industrial Corridor have been extracting oil from Birgunj.

According to the Birgunj Customs Office, the soybean oil exported this year has increased by 379 percent based on price as compared to the same period last year. The domestic producers have been focusing on soybean oil export after the suspension of palm oil export. Since last Baisakh, India had banned the import of palm oil.

Industrialists have started exporting soybean crude oil to India after processing it. Semi-refined soybean oil is imported from Argentina, Brazil, Ukraine, Indonesia and other countries. Such oil is being exported from Nepal to India with zero customs facility.
