Hyderabad sources added the Telangana civil supplies department has created record by procuring paddy more than double the quantity it purchased last year. Meanwhile the minimum support price (MSP) this year was Rs 1,770 per quintal for Grade A quality.  Reportedly this Kharif season, the total procurement was 34.26 lakh tonnes from 6.71 lakh farmers and also another two to three lakh tons of paddy is expected to be purchased in a few days. 

Furthermore in the last Kharif season, the department procured only 18.24 Lakh tonnes of paddy from 4.17 lakh farmers through 2,716 Paddy Procurement Centers (PPCs). Reports added the civil supplies department attributes the credit for the increased harvest to good weather conditions, ample rainfall and increased power supply in the rural areas.
