50,000 MT of rice from India to avert rice shortage

The Government has decided to import 50,000 metric tons of rice under the Indian loan assistance program, the Prime Minister’s Office has noted.

It was decided at a discussion held at the Prime Minister’s Office yesterday (16) to allocate the necessary funds for this purpose to the State Trading Corporation under the Indian Loan Assistance Program.

This step is expected to avert a possible rice shortage in the future and to curb the abnormal rise in rice prices.
