The price of rice has suddenly started to increase. After the increase in the price of rice in Mokam, the price of rice is now higher in the whole country including the capital Dhaka. During this phase, the price of all types of rice – coarse, medium and fine – has increased. Vendors say mill owners have increased the price of rice at the beginning of the year. However, mill owners and wholesale traders claim that the price of rice has increased due to the reduction in the supply of rice in the market.

It has been found that the price of rice has increased by Tk 2 to Tk 6 per kg, depending on the quality and type, in the span of two weeks. Although the yield of Aman rice is good this time, the production cost of rice has increased compared to before. But at this time of the season, traders do not see enough reason for the price of rice to rise so much in the market.

Jasim Uddin, the owner of Ismail and Sons, a rice shop in the capital’s Karwan Bazaar, told Prothom Alo, “The price of rice has suddenly increased. And the way the price has increased, it cannot be called normal. This seller thinks that there is an attempt to create a rice crisis in the market by reducing the supply.

Yesterday, on Sunday, I visited Palashi Bazar, New Market Kachha Bazar and Karwan Bazar in the capital. It was seen that coarse rice (Golden and China Iri) which was Tk 50-52 a kg a week ago, now has to be bought at Tk 54-55. Medium quality rice (pajam and BR 28) has increased from Tk 55-58 to Tk 60-62 per kg. And narrow rice like Miniket and Nazirshail increased from Tk 62-75 to Tk 68 to Tk 80. Some fine rices, however, are being sold at higher prices.
