Earlier, in the case of rice export from Telangana to other states, there was a policy of providing a 2 per cent concession on CST dues if Form C was filed.
The rice millers’ representatives have stated they were suffering financial loss due to not providing a 2 per cent tax concession. They complained to the government several times that the purpose of the C form was to verify whether the rice has been exported or not, and if it is not there, how will their right be cancelled.
They requested the government to look into other methods to verify their exports instead of Form C. They said that they would submit any proof like loading, releasing, certificates, lorries, railway permits, waybills, etc.
During KCR’s visit to Damaracharla, Telangana Rice millers association representatives, accompanied by Minister Jagdish Reddy, Miryalagudem MLA Bhaskar Rao along with Rythubandhu Samiti President, Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, met him and requested that justice be done to them.
After examining their request, the CM realized that it was not only in the interest of the Telangana rice millers but also in the interest of the Telangana farmers. The CM directed chief secretary Somesh Kumar to look into their issue and take immediate action to assist them.
On behalf of the Telangana rice millers and farmers, MLA Nalamotu Bhaskar Rao and Rythu Bandhu president Palla Rajeshwar Reddy thanked KCR for accepting the millers’ request and issuing the GO immediately.
