Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said Wednesday that the government will consider a proposal over duty cut on onion import to lessen sufferings of people.

"We don't want people’s sufferings to increase. We don’t expect it. Neither the Prime Minister, nor me, or any one expect that,” he told newsmen after a virtual meeting of cabinet committee on government purchase.

Earlier on the day Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi called the authorities concerned to lower the 5.0 per cent duty on onion import until 2021.
