RAIPUR, Aug 26: Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday wrote a letter to Prime
Minister Narendra Modi, seeking the release Rs 6,000 crore due to the state agencies related to rice
under the decentralized procurement scheme.
The “Government of India/Food Corporation of India” is yet to release outstanding payments of around
Rs 6,000 crore to the state agencies, the letter claimed.
The state government has to bear a huge financial burden in disposal of paddy left after depositing rice
in the central pool (through FCI) and the Centre does not compensate the state for this disposal of
surplus paddy, Baghel pointed out.
In view of the seriousness of the situation, the prime minister should direct the concerned authorities to
settle all outstanding payments in a time-bound manner, the letter said. (PTI)
