A decision to this effect was taken by the Council of Ministers in its meeting held here at Punjab Civil Secretariat-I under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister.

Disclosing this here today a spokesperson of the Chief Minister’s Office said that this policy has been prepared for getting the Paddy procured by State Procurement Agencies (Pungrain, Markfed, Punsup and PSWC) converted into Custom Milled Rice and its delivery into Central Pool. As per the policy, the Rice Mills will be linked to the procurement centres in time as per the purchase centre allotment list issued by the Department and the paddy will be stored at the eligible rice mills as per their entitlement and agreement executed between the state agencies and the rice millers. Policy stipulates that the rice millers shall deliver the due rice of paddy stored up to March 31st, 2023 as per policy and agreement.

The Kharif Marketing Season (KMS) 2022-23 will start from October 1st, 2022 and the procurement of paddy will be completed by November 30th. During KMS 2022-23, the paddy so procured will be stored in eligible rice mills situated in the State.
