India has suspended 39 licenses to import refined palm oil after a surge in duty-free imports from neighbouring countries such as Nepal and Bangladesh which are not key producers of palm oil, government and trade sources said.

“All these 39 licences for import of refined palm oil will be immediately put under suspension,” a government circular seen by Reuters on Monday said.
