Record paddy purchase in Anuradhapura

The Paddy Marketing Board (PMB)has purchased a record quantity of paddy exceeding 26,000 metric tons from the Anuradhapura zone. The zone includes Anuradhapura, Vavuniya, Mannar, Kilinochchi and Mulaithivu districts.

Anuradhapura PMB zonal manager Bandula Kumara said they purchased 5,000 metric tons of paddy from the north.

Though there were 34 purchasing centres in the Anuradhapura district, 18 are not functioning due to lack of space. In the northern region, the PMB launched seven buying centres at Mulaithivu, Kilinochchi, Mulangiril, Mankulam, Ramanathapuram, Nanattan and Kattankulam.

The Anuradhapura zonal PMB office will buy paddy exceeding 30,000 metric tons.

According to sources, the Anuradhapura district is on the top in Maha season paddy purchasing as against 16,500 and 16,000 metric tons purchased in Polonnaruwa and Ampara respectively. The Anuradhapura District Secretary instructed the Anuradhapura zonal PMB authorities to commence a mobile paddy purchasing service in areas where purchasing centres were either closed or not available.
