Govt cuts import duty on rice

Samakal Correspondent
The government has decided to cut duty on rice import to check the price of the prime staple.

The new duty will be 10 percent reducing from the existing 28 percent, Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed told this to the reporters at his Secretariat office on Tuesday.

The decision has been taken on Monday following the order of the prime minister, he said adding that now the price of rice will reduce Tk 6 per kilogram.

"There is no crisis of rice in the country. The mill owners have increased the price after reducing supply by forming a syndicate," he said.
