The Andhra Pradesh Government will pay Rs 220 more to paddy farmers in the State, over the Rs 1,280 a quintal announced by the Centre as minimum support price.

The farmers will get Rs 1,500 a quintal of paddy on Sona Masuri and other BPT varieties that fall in the Grade A category for the ensuing kharif marketing season.

Announcing this at a press conference here on Saturday, Mr D. Sridhar Babu, Minister for Food and Civil Supplies, said the State Civil Supplies Corporation Ltd would open exclusive centres for purchase of the Grade A varieties.

“Those who want to sell the commodity at the rate can contact the district managers of the department in their respective districts,” he said.
