VIJAYAWADA: Rice millers from across the country, at their one-day conference to be held here on April 25, will seek a uniform price to be paid by the government for custom milling of rice given to them after procuring it from farmers.

Speaking to newsmen here Thursday, AP Rice Millers Association Gummadi Venkateswara Rao, said the Centre was paying different prices in different states for custom milling. Though the rice millers were not against the government taking over procurement of paddy from farmers, they should give it to millers for custom milling for an attractive price, he said. In AP, the price paid by the government for custom milling was Rs 15 per tonne while it is Rs 85 per tonne in Odisha and Rs 30 in Telangana, he said.
