Boiled Rice Under PDS to be Available in Dakshina Kannada Within Three Months: Much Needed Step

District in-charge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary said that there is demand from the public for boiled rice (Kuchalakki) in Dakshina Kannada District and most of the people do not prefer the white rice given under PDS. Therefore, the district administration will likely provide boiled rice (red) which is in demand under the Public Distribution System (PDS) in DK.
Minister Poojary said that DK district needs 10 lac quintal boiled rice every year for which 17 lac quintal paddy should be grown. But only 2 lac quintal is grown in the district due to which paddy must be purchased from Chamarajanagar, Mandya, Ramanagara, Belagavi, and Shivamogga districts or to provide a supportive price. He also mentioned that approval has to be taken from the union government to purchase red rice and to provide subsidies while purchasing the same.
“We have drawn guidelines as per 80:20 ratio, which means that 8 kg boiled rice and 2 kg white rice will be distributed. Both for Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts. The union government has not accredited to give subsidy for various varieties of red boiled rice. Hence, we will send various varieties of boiled rice to the union government and obtain accreditation from the government which will help us to purchase and process the boiled rice. This process may require three months”, the minister added.
