The Ministry said the prices of edible oil are dependent on a complex set of factors which also include international prices, and domestic production. As the gap between domestic consumption and production is high, India has to import a significant amount of edible oil, it said, adding that the government is working on a series of mid- and long-term measures to resolve the issue on a permanent basis.

The measures will contribute towards making India ‘Atma Nirbhar’ in edible oils, which is a key ingredient in cooking food in India.
