The Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations has appealed to the State government to supply single boiled rice instead of double boiled rice through the public distribution system. In a representation submitted to Swaran Singh, Principal Secretary, Food, Cooperation and Consumer Protection, M.Sekaran, president of the federation, said many people preferred single boiled rice. Supplying single boiled rice would also help prevent diversion of PDS rice as most consumers would purchase it, he said.
