The government on Tuesday removed export curbs on medical goggles and gloves, which were in demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic, to boost outbound shipments of these products.

The export restrictions were imposed on account of the spread of Covid-19.

“The export policy of medical goggles and Nitrile/NBR gloves is amended from restricted to free category making all types of medical goggles and Nitrile/NBR gloves freely exportable,” the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.
