New Delhi. The Modi government has taken a big decision to reduce the rising prices of edible oil. In fact, the government on Saturday reduced the effective custom duty of crude palm oil or CPO to 5.5 percent. This move will help in reducing the prices of edible oil and provide relief to the consumers.
An official notification said on Saturday that the Agricultural Infrastructure Development Cess of 5 per cent will now be levied on crude palm oil, which was 7.5 per cent so far. After this reduction, the effective custom duty on crude palm oil will be 5.5 per cent instead of 8.25 per cent.
