BJP & BRS slam Congress government over bonus for paddy

Slamming the state government's decision, BRS leader KT Rama Rao pointed out that during the Assembly elections, the Congress had promised Rs 500 as a bonus over MSP on any variety of rice but now decided to extend the bonus to only fine variety of paddy.

Govt hikes procurement price of paddy

The state government has increased the minimum support price (MSP) of common paddy from Rs 2,040 to Rs 2,183 per quintal. In addition to this, an additional Rs 20 per quintal will be given above this MSP if a farmer sells the paddy in the centralised procurement centres (CPCs), district procurement centres (DPCS) and mobile CPCs.

Paddy worth Rs 47,644 cr bought at MSP benefitting 13.5 lakh farmers

Paddy procurement for Kharif marketing season 2022-23 (October-September) is progressing smoothly in 13 States/Union Territories -- Punjab, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, J-K, Kerala, Telangana, Haryana, and Tamil Nadu with purchase of over 231 lakh tonne.
