India has started importing corn from Myanmar duty-free to meet its surging demand. At least three ships have already arrived at VO Chidambaranar Port in Tamil Nadu’s Thoothukudi, with more expected by July-end. Corn imports from Myanmar are duty-free as Myanmar is considered a least developed country, while imports from other countries face a 60% duty, a 5% IGST, and a 10% social welfare surcharge.

However, the Centre allows tariff rate quota (TRQ) imports at a 15% concessional duty. The duty-free imports are a result of negotiations between economic associations from India and Myanmar. India requires over 1 million tons of corn annually for its poultry farming sector alone. The move aims to stabilize supply and meet the growing demand, particularly from the poultry, starch, and ethanol sectors.
