In 1989, there w e r e 357000 such shops compared with 243 000 in 1980. And the PDS has been improved in remote and inaccessible areas. Consumers buying from the PDS pay a fixed issue price for rice, which is uniformly applied across the country and which is fixed by the government, taking into consideration the prevailing prices in the open market and the ability of the poor to pay. These issue prices do not cover the entire costs involved in purchasing, paddy milling, handling, storage, interest charges and so on: the difference in cost is covered by the government.
Real rice prices have declined; paid out costs by farmers as a proportion of the value of total production have risen over time as material input prices and hired capital charges increased. In Bangladesh, output of paddy fell below the requirements of a growing population.

The unrest was not suppressed before warehouses w e r e looted and exports suspended. Because of political upheaval, the government has sought to conserve its stocks. During the 1985—89 period recorded exports averaged less than 365 000 tonnes per annum with shipments b e l o w this level in 1988 and 1989. The free movement of rice across provincial borders and the setting up of small village mills is believed to have resulted in a sharp increase in smuggling of rice into neighbouring Bangladesh and to a lesser extent, China and Thailand.
