The government will provide rice to the tune of Tk 10 to 50 lakh families of the country. These families will get 30 kg of rice per month.After collecting the necessary rice, the ‘Food Advantage Program’ will be started on Wednesday (September 20th).
It is learned that since the rice reservoir was not satisfactory, it was not possible to start ‘Food Advantage Program’ since 1 September.
After the increase of the stock, the program was scheduled to start from September 16 on Saturday. But the government could not start it because it did not have a balanced distribution of rice in government warehouses.
Currently there are three lakh 31 thousand tonnes of rice in the warehouse, but not all areas of the country. Most of these rice are in Chittagong and Khulna-based foodgrams.
These rice imported from different countries, including Vietnam, will be sent to different regions of the country.
