A MRP was imposed on rice in April and it was revised yesterday.
The new MRP was Rs 96 for a kilo of Nadu, Rs 98 for a kilo of Samba and Rs 125 for a kilo of Keeri Samba.
However, the Government once again revised the MRP announced yesterday with new prices coming into effect from today. (Colombo Gazette)
