The procurement price of paddy has been hiked by Rs 2 per kg, from Rs 15 to Rs 17.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told a post-cabinet briefing that from the next season onwards steps would be taken to disburse the price of paddy to farmers on the spot. 

He also said that the state government had taken a serious view that copra procurement in the last season was a failure. “The state was not able to fully utilise the central scheme for procurement. Instructions have been given that it should not happen at least in the next season,” he said.
