Nearly 1m tonnes of rice imported from India so far
Some 9,62,470 tonnes of rice were imported through Benapole, Bhomra and Darshana land-ports in the last 7 months of the current fiscal year.

Benapole customs sources said that importers brought some 9,62,470 tonnes of rice into Bangladesh since July 2007 till January 3, 2008.

Zakir Hossain, assistant commissioner of Benapole customs, told journalists that rice traders imported some 2,16,622 tonnes of rice in January 2008 and 6,713 tonnes of rice were imported in the first three days of February this year. The import of rice is still going on, he added.

The import of rice has made the market stable but the prices did not decline due to the steps taken by the government, an importer told this correspondent. Mizanur Rahman, an employee of a private organization, claimed that the government did not fulfil the demand of the people but only that of the dealers.

‘We want rice at less than Tk 20 per kg,’ he added. But rice was retailed at prices between Tk 27 and 42 per kg in the markets of Jessore on Monday. Niranjan Paul, a wholesaler of rice, said that rice of different varieties costs between Tk 2,650 and 3,800 per tonne.

The BR-11 strain of rice was selling at Tk 27 per kg, Super Miniket at Tk 42 per kg and Swarna at Tk 28 per kg in Jessore’s markets.
