The export of basmati rice has increased from USD 3208.60 million in 2016-17 to USD 4712.44 million in 2018-19.

Promotion of exports of agricultural products like basmati rice is a continuous process. The Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), an autonomous organisation under the administrative control of Department of Commerce, has been mandated with the export promotion of rice including basmati rice. APEDA has been able to register Basmati Rice as a Geographical Indication (GI) in February 2016. APEDA, in collaboration with the trade, has also established Basmati Export Development Foundation (BEDF), which undertakes various activities for development and export promotion of Basmati rice. Moreover, APEDA has also been providing assistance to the Basmati rice exporters under various components of its export promotion scheme.

No country has imposed a ban on import of basmati rice from India. The quantum and value of rice exported and imported during each of the last three years and the current year, country and variety-wise (basmati and non-basmati) are:
