The rice market managed to maintain their previous quoted levels on Monday.

With trading being lukewarm, prices of aromatic and non-basmati rice ruled flat, said Mr Praveen Kumar, a rice miller. Market sentiment is weak, and traders are not interested in bulk buying as demand is low, he added.

Summer paddy

Sowing of summer paddy will be on time as the meteorological department expects monsoon to arrive early. Earlier, due to some uncertainty created by La Nina, it was expected that monsoon may not come on time, delaying the sowing of summer paddy and affecting prices in the short term.
