Govt purchases 95% of rice produced in Chhattisgarh, open market availability dips

15 March 2024

Data shows that FCI through State agencies has purchased 74 lt of rice, whereas the Agriculture Ministry data show the production at 78.22 lt

Chhattisgarh has procured 95 per cent of the State’s rice production this year, aided by a ₹900/quintal bonus paid by the Vishnu Deo Sai Government above the minimum support price (MSP) of paddy resulting in rice millers and traders reportedly seeking grain from other States to meet the demand of the 20 per cent of the population not covered under the national food security law.
