The Central government has relaxed specifications for purchase of paddy by the government agencies and rice millers in Karimnagar, Warangal, Nalgonda, Srikakulam, East Godavari, West Godavari and Krishna districts.

As per the relaxed norms, paddy having damaged, discoloured, sprouted and weevil led grains up to a maximum limit of 12 per cent may be procured against the existing limit of 4 per cent under uniform specifications in respect of both Grade-A and common subject to the condition that damaged, sprouted and weevil led grains together do not exceed five p.c. with full value cut.

The percentage of damaged/slightly damaged grains may be relaxed up to 4 per cent against the existing limit of 3 per cent without any value cut in case of CMR and with full value cut in case of levy rice. 

The percentage of broken grains in raw rice may be relaxed up to 30 per cent against the existing limit of 25 per cent in raw rice milled out of relaxed specification paddy without any value cut in case of CMR and with half value cut in case of levy rice.  Necessary arrangements have been made to procure paddy from the farmers.
