The government has bought 52.6 mln tn paddy in the 2020-21 (Oct-Sep) kharif marketing season so far, up 27.1% on year, it said in a release. Paddy is India's largest grown kharif crop. Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has directed the food, civil supplies, and consumer affairs department to set up infrastructure at block levels across the state for procurement of paddy from farmers at the minimum support price of 1,868 rupees per 100 kg, the Chief Minister's Office said in a Twitter post.
