50% paddy bought via govt procurement centres | Hyderabad News

Hyderabad: The procurement centres set up by the state government have been able to purchase only 50 per cent of the total anticipated quantity of paddy from farmers, between October and December 31.
While the farmers welfare associations said that the farmers incurred losses on the remaining 50 per cent of their agriculture produce sold to the traders and rice millers in the open market as they did not get the MSP, officials maintained that the ryots sell their agriculture to private traders mostly when they get a price better than what is being offered by the government at the procurement centres.
The government had offered Rs 1,888 per quintal MSP for the paddy. However, the setting up of procurement centres at villages was delayed in October.
“Firstly, the delay by the government to procure paddy from October first week itself, and later the officials and self helf help group members raising too many queries over the quality of paddy and slow procurement resulted in many farmers selling their produce in the open market,” said K Ravi of Rythu Swarajya Vedika, which works for the welfare of farmers.
