    Hyderabad: Civil Supplies Minister N Uttam Kumar Reddy has instructed officials to speed up the delivery of rice to FCI by January 31. In a video conference with District Collectors and officials, the Minister expressed concern about the delay in custom milling of rice and poor performance in deliveries. He emphasized that the Civil Supplies Corporation needs to supply 7.83 lakh metric tonnes of rice to FCI by the deadline, and all Telangana millers must deliver about 42 lakh metric tonnes of rice in the coming days.

    The Minister highlighted that the Civil Supplies Corporation has taken loans to collect paddy from farmers and supply it to the millers. However, delays in rice distribution have resulted in significant losses for the corporation. He warned that if there is a delay in distributing the fixed quantity of CMR rice to FCI, it would impact future allocations to Telangana.
