Central Subsidy of Rs. 27.38 and Rs.19.81 per kg of Rice and wheat respectively given to Odisha under NFSA , exposed through RTI

Naveen Patnaik Govt’s claim of giving rice at the rate of Rs. 1.00 per kg is false and misleading, exposed through RTI.

Naveen Patnaik Govt. takes a lot of credit for providing Rice @ Rs.1/- per kg to the poor and vulnerable Households in the state. It is alleged that this scheme has created strong vote bank for BJD Govt. in the state. While implementing National Food Security Act, the State Govt. has also declared to continue to provide rice and wheat at the rate of Rs.1.00 per kg.

To understand exact amount of subsidy given by the Central Govt. for rice and wheat under Targetted PDS, RTI Application dated 23.11.12015 was submitted to the CPIO, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Govt. of India. While responding the RTI Query, the CPIO supplied the following information.
A. As per FCI Economic Sheet for 2015-16, per kg expenditure incurred by FCI for procurement of rice work out to be Rs. 30.38/kg and for wheat it is Rs.21.81/kg.

B. As per FCI Economic Cost for 2015-16 per kg subsidy for wheat after adjusting central issue price of Rs.2/kg works to be Rs. 19.81/kg. Similarly for rice as per DCI economic cost 2015-16 after adjusting Rs.3/kg as central issue price it works out to be Rs.27.38/kg.

B. Similarly, while the Central Govt. gives wheat Rs. 2.00 per kg to the beneficiaries by bearing subsidy of Rs. 19.81 per kg under the present arrangement made under National Food Security Act, the State Govt. gives wheat at the rate of Rs. 1.00 per kg by bearing just Rs.1.00 per kg of wheat under PDS.
