Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday said the State government would distribute the one lakh tonnes of rice under the Centre’s Open Market Scheme through ration shops and Supplyco outlets at Rs.19.50 a kg as part of its attempts to tackle the inexplicable rise in prices of the commodity in the State.

Accordingly, an additional 15 kg a month would be available through Supplyco outlets at Rs.19.50 a kg for all categories of cardholders. Those coming under the APL category would get an additional 10 kg a month through ration shops at Rs.19.50 a kg. The additional quantity of rice that would be distributed through these two outlets would be over and above the current 20 kg available through Supplyco at various rates, Mr. Chandy said.
