The day’s CCGP meeting approved a proposal from the Ministry of Food for procuring 50,000 metric tons of non Basmati boiled rice from M/S Soubhik Exports Limited, India with around around Taka 163.66 crore. The consignment of rice will be imported through railways where the price for per metric ton of rice would be $386 while per KG rice would be Taka 32.73.

The Cabinet Division additional secretary said the meeting gave approval to a proposal from the Secondary and Higher Education Division for procuring vocational education equipment for 640 educational institutions under the 2nd and 4th lot of the project titled “Secondary Education Sector Investment Programme”.

Meanwhile, the Finance Minister said the day’s meeting did not consider five proposals from the Ministry of Housing and Public Works as the government has taken decision not to consider any proposal for fresh project works from this Ministry until June 30 this year.

He said that the public works against these five placed proposals would not be completed within this fiscal year as there is not ample time left for completion and thus those were not considered.

Kamal said that during this period, the government would only consider funding of the ongoing projects, the foreign funded projects and the concerned variation proposals from this Ministry.
