Another unit near by had made them completely debt free in a span of 5 years & had stock of available paddy to run for more than 6 months without even buying a single consignment of paddy.

The promoter is a Engineer passed in 1993, had worked for various organisations of national repute at various capacities, is engaged in this activity since 2014.

The Govt. use to supply paddy & take back Rice to their godowns & leave by products to unit as their margin & also provide some charges for milling including Gunny depreciation, Joint Custody Charges with handling & transportation. In this operation no need of working capital. Since this depends upon the government policy decision that what quantity of paddy they will be getting converted.
