Total actual receipt of Infrastructure Development Fee (ID Fee) till 31st March 2014 has been to the tune of Rs. 5981.95 crores. With effect from April 1, 2008, FEE on all agricultural produce except fruits, vegetables and pulses has been enhanced from 1% to 2% for every hundred rupees for creation of major infrastructure projects needed for the economic growth of the state

The rate of fee has been further enhanced from 2% to 3% wef 24th September, 2008, but Govt. of India, on whose behalf FCI procures food grains of A- (SO) from CARE Ltd. and BBB + (SO) from ICRA Ltd., PIDB (Wheat and Paddy) for central pool, has not yet sanctioned the revised fee @ 3%. Thus PIDB is getting ID Fee at the rate of 2% on Wheat and Paddy
