3 rice mills owners joined hands to determine paddy purchasing prices

Three owners of rice mills in Polonnaruwa have held a special meeting to determine the prices of paddy at this season and control the paddy purchasing process.

Main agents from 10 districts that cultivate paddy have also joined this meeting.

The aim of the meeting is reportedly to control the price of paddy to enable the main three rice mills owners to purchase as much as paddy.

It has been decided to increase the price of Nadu rice from the preset controlled price of Rs 96 to Rs 100.
