Although the amount of rice import through Hili land port of Dinajpur has increased a little more than before, the price is not decreasing, but the rice market has become unstable by increasing every day. The price of all types of rice has gone up by Rs 2-3 per kg in a few days. Low-income working people are in trouble.

Recently, the government allowed various importers to import seven lakh tonnes of rice to alleviate the rice crisis in the country. Import duty was also reduced from 62.5 to 15 percent. As a result, after a year and a half, the import of rice through the port started on January 9 and the price also started falling.

However, recently the price of rice has been increased by Rs 2-3 per kg on various pretexts. At present, the wholesale price of Swarna rice has increased from Rs 40 to Rs 42, Atash rice from Rs 44 to Rs 47 and Shampa from Rs 54 to Rs 55; In retail, which is being sold at an additional price of 1-2 rupees.
