The lab would be setup at Skill Development Centre, near Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar. The rice exporters in turn promised to give premium to farmers who would produce pesticide free paddy basmati."The government will examine the demands of the association in a fortnight and will honour all commitments made to the rice industry as per the letter of law and the intent of the Cabinet'' assured Finance Minister.The Food and Civil Supplies Minister categorically informed that the department was forced to impose restrictions on influx of paddy from other states since the mal-practises by the black sheep in the Industry had adversely affected the interests of the farmers and the revenue of the State in the past. However, an officer was deputed to re-look into the genuine demands of the association pertaining Market Fee, Fiscal incentives and others.
