New Delhi, Nov 19 (UNI) There was no need for the imposition of fresh ban on the export of milk powder in view of sufficient availability of milk during flush season, the Lok Sabha was informed today.

The ban on export of milk power lapsed on September 30 this year and in view of sufficient availability of milk during flush season, there was no need for the imposition of fresh ban on the export of milk powder, Minister of State for Agriculture Taslimuddin said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.
