State Government to procure rice nearly 6 lakh tonnes from open market

Hyderabad, August 16, 2008

The State Government has decided to supply superfine rice grade BPT rice at Rs.18 a kg shortly. It has asked the millers to hold discussions with joint collectors and civil supplies officials to see that sales points were opened in all the areas since a large cross section of people preferred superfine rice. Minister for Finance, K Rosaiah said that the millers should make sure that the rice is supplied at subsidized prices even if they incur some losses.

Rosaiah was speaking to media after attending a meeting of the Cabinet sub committee constituted on price rise convened by the Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy on Saturday. He said that it has decided to procure 6 lakh tonnes of rice from the open market to overcome the shortage caused by the Central Government.

The State Government would pay the cost fixed by the FCI and an additional Rs.10 a quintal for the rice would be procured form the market. The Civil Supplies Commissioner, Poonam Malakondaiah said it would cost Rs.150 crore for every one tonnes of rice procured from the open market.
