Haryana Rice millers up in arms against new CMR policy

Karnal, September 14

Unhappy with the new Custom Milled Rice (CMR) policy 2020-21, state’s rice millers are not showing interest in getting themselves registered for paddy procurement.

They claimed that the new policy was not miller-friendly. They said the government had raised the FD guarantee to Rs 50 lakh for the first tonne of paddy from Rs 10 lakh earlier and Rs 10 lakh per tonne further from Rs 5 lakh. The millers demanded the government to go with the CMR policy applicable 2 years ago.

PK Das, Additional Chief Secretary, said around 200 rice millers got themselves registered for the CMR policy and were hopeful that around 500 more would get themselves registered. He said they were looking into the demands of the rice millers and some relaxation could be given in the policy. — TNS
