The Consumer Affairs Authority has filed court action against a leading rice mill in Polonnaruwa for selling rice at prices higher than the ceiling price to retail shops.

In the past 20 days, around 65 retail shops in Puttalam had been raided for selling rice at high prices.

Their owners said they were getting rice at high prices.

The CAA investigated, found the mill violating the maximum price requirements and took it to court.
