Abstract: Rice is an important crop in India and second most important crop in the world. India is not only a big consumer of rice but also second largest producer of rice after China. Rice is the staple food for almost 65 percent of the population in India. Paddy in its raw form cannot be consumed by human beings. It needs to be suitably processed for obtaining rice. Rice milling is the process which helps in removal of hulls and barns from paddy grains to produce polished rice. Rice forms the basic primary processed product obtained from paddy and this is further processed for obtaining various secondary and tertiary products. Rice processing in India is carried out in small and medium size rice mills. The present study entitled “Value chain analysis of rice mills in Nalgonda district of Telangana” was undertaken with the following objectives: 1) To estimate the trends in growth of rice mills in India, Telangana and Nalgonda district. 2) To analyze the various activities carried out by the rice mills in Nalgonda district based on Porter’s value chain model. 3) To identify the problems faced by rice millers in carrying out various activities related to rice milling and suggest suitable measures. A questionnaire will be designed for gathering primary information from the millers. The secondary data would be collected from various published sources like journals, reports of Government, websites, millers associations etc. The primary data with respect to the primary activities carried out by the miller’s i.e. inbound logistics, operations, outbound logistics, sales and marketing and services and the secondary activities carried out by the millers i.e., procurement, human resource management, technology and infrastructure would be collected from the millers. The secondary data pertaining to the number of mills, growth trends and capacity would be collected for analyzing the trends in growth of rice mills. The results showed that the cost of processing was Rs. 16642.53/tone and the gross return worked out of Rs.21000/tone. Therefore a net return of Rs.4357.47/tone was obtained from the processing of paddy into rice and paddy husk. The return structure of large processing unit revealed that Benefit Cost Ratio was 1.26. Thus it can be analyzed that investment pattern in large processing plant is financially feasible and profitable for investors. The cost of processing was Rs14359.69/tone and the gross return worked out to Rs.21000/tone. Therefore a net return of Rs.6640.31/tone was obtained from the processing of paddy into rice and paddy husk. The return structure of large processing unit revealed that Benefit Cost Ratio was 1.46. Thus it can be analyzed that investment pattern in medium processing plant is financially feasible and profitable for investors. The cost of processing was Rs17246.25/tone and the gross return worked out to Rs.21000/tone. Therefore a net return of Rs.3753.75/tone was obtained from the processing of paddy into rice and paddy husk. The return structure of large processing unit revealed that Benefit Cost Ratio was 1.22 for the plant having processing capacity of 4000 TPA rice. Thus it can be analyzed that investment pattern in small processing plant is financially feasible and profitable for investors. Though the BC ratio positions of small,medium and large sized rice mills were within the acceptable norms, but the overall the medium sized rice mills financially better than the both small and medium rice mill units. The major problems encountered by the rice millers are lack of storage facilities, high sale tax, market tax, lack of timely institutional finance etc.
