Price relief of Rice from August 10

33 outlet in Hyderabad to sell rice at Rs.14 a kg

Hyderabad, August 8, 2008

Rice for the urban poor reeling from high food prices will finally get a sense of relief. The State Government has decided to open outlets at 33 places in Hyderabad on August 10 wherein rice would be sold at Rs. 14 a kg of common variety and Rs. 16 a kg of fine variety. Similar centres would start functioning across the State in a phased manner.

The Chief Minister, Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy issued orders to this effect to the officials concerned at a review meeting on the steps to be taken to help people affected by the soaring prices of rice that is now selling between Rs. 28 to Rs. 30 a kg in the open market. The Minister for Civil Supplies, K Ramakrishna and Minister for Agriculture, N Raghuveera Reddy said modalities are being worked out to ensure that the new measure does not lead to hoarding of the cheep rice by traders looking to make a killing later.

Millers would be required to sell 66 percent of levy free rice within the State. The rest may be exported. This decision was taken since rice from the State is finding its way into other States which have been experiencing greater shortages. Another important decision is to apply the AP Scheduled Commodities license for Storage order to rice and edible oils also. Under the provisions,a non-trader is not allowed to stock more than 2,000 quintals and a trader not more than 4,000 quintals.
