The government has determined the price of rice. The price of the best miniket rice (millgate price) has been fixed at Tk2,575 per 50 kg bag and medium rice at Tk 2,250 per 50 kg bag.

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder said the price was fixed after a three-and-a-half-hour meeting with rice mill owners and rice traders in the conference room of the food building on Tuesday.

If the price is not implemented, the government will allow the import of fine rice within 10 days, he said.

The meeting chaired by the Food Secretary Moshammat Nazmanara Khanum was also attended by Agriculture Secretary Nasiruzzaman, Director General of Food Department Sarwar Mahmud and others.
