Stocks in State granaries to be sold at gazetted prices

The government has decided to sell the paddy stocks in the possession of the District Secretaries and paddy stocks owned by the Paddy Marketing Board through Sathosa outlets by threshing them into rice. The Director General of Information said Cabinet approval has been granted to sell these rice stocks to consumers under the gazetted price.

This decision was reached after considering the current rice shortage in the market and the owners of rice mills being unable to supply sufficient rice stocks under the controlled price.
