DCs asked to procure rice directly from farmers

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder  on Tuesday asked deputy commissioners of all districts to ensure that rice is procured directly from farmers to fulfill the target of rice procurement set by the government.

The minister requested the DCs across the country at their conference on the third day which is being held over five days.

To date, the government has procured a total of 1.15 lakh tonnes of paddy from millers against the target of four lakh tonnes.
