Parliamentary panel raps Tea Board on unscrupulous exports

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Commerce has criticised the Tea Board for failing to check unscrupulous exporters importing cheap tea and re-exporting under false certificate as Tea of Indian Origin.

The panel, which laid down its 102nd report on "Performance of the Plantation Sector - Tea and Coffee Industry" in Parliament recently, said: "The committee is gravely concerned over the unpreparedness of the department (read the ministry and Tea Board) to deal with unscrupulous exporters importing cheap tea from other countries and re-exporting it without any significant value addition under the false certificate as Tea of Indian Origin".
