There are about 80 thousand ration shops in UP under the Public Distribution System. Through these shops, fortified rice will reach the kin of 3.59 crore ration card holders. This will help in saving about 15 crore families of ration card holders from malnutrition.
Let us tell you that this rice will be available at every shop from the new year.
Fortified rice is being given in UP for Mid Day Meal Scheme and Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) from September 2021. In the month of June itself, fortified rice was distributed from ration shops in 31 districts of the state. This rice is being provided to the state by the Food Corporation of India. The Food and Logistics Department plans to distribute fortified rice in all the districts of UP from the upcoming paddy procurement season.
According to the distribution
officers, the procurement of paddy will start at MSP in the state from October. This time the paddy purchased at government procurement centers will be given to such rice mills which can prepare fortified rice. Instead of paddy, rice mills will start getting fortified rice by the end of December. Accordingly, from the beginning of next year i.e. from January, distribution of fortified rice will start in all the districts through ration shops.
Government will have 47 lakh tonnes of rice!
Let us tell you that the rice mill returns about 67 kg of rice out of one quintal of paddy. To prepare fortified rice, one kg of fortified rice kernel is mixed in one quintal of rice. On this basis, if 65 lakh tonnes of paddy is procured like last year, then about 47 lakh tonnes of rice will be with the government.
