This is the reason why the central government has imposed 20 percent export tax on the export of non-basmati rice, then the export of broken rice has been completely banned. . Food Secretary Sudhanshu Pandey said that due to the problem of drought in the four states and the trend of farmers towards other crops, production may remain low by 10 to 12 million in Kharif season.
