Dhamtari is the biggest mandi of paddy in Chhattisgarh. Nearly 2132.928 in 2000-01 of paddy came to it for sell. Out of 117 rice mills 48 are located in Dhamtari town within a range of 2 km., 77 rice mills are located in an aerial distance of 5 km. from Dhamtari town. About 1-1.1 lakh people (as per 2001 census) of Dhamtari town and nearby villages are affected by the pollution caused by the discharge of the rice mills.
