Head Of State of the United Rice Producers’ Organization – Mudith Perera states that the 3 largest rice millers in the nation are getting a shocking earnings of Rs. 100 million a day.
This is because of them marketing rice at expensive costs regardless of acquiring paddy supplies from previous periods at a much reduced rate.
The supplies launched to the marketplace nowadays are from the previous ‘Yala’ period where they had actually purchased paddy for 60 rupees per kilo.
Throughout the previous ‘Maha’ period, they had actually purchased paddy for 110 rupees per kilo.
Also if they marketed rice under the MRP enforced by the Customer Matters Authority, the 3 largest rice millers in the nation would certainly acquire a Rs. 50 earnings per kilo.
Consequently, although it is greater than feasible for them to give rice under the MRP, they are unjustly making huge revenues while the general public, that are not able to manage such costs, are experiencing.
