DM finds middlemen at paddy procurement centre, orders probe | Bareilly News

Bareilly: After paying a surprise visit to a government paddy procurement centre in the disguise of a farmer on a bike, the Rampur district magistrate was approached by middlemen for selling the paddy at a price lower than Minimum Support price (MSP) to private buyers. He also found that the centre in-charge was delaying the procurement of paddy which was forcing farmers to sell their crop to private buyers. The DM ordered an FIR against the centre in-charge and a probe against another.
There were many complaints from the farmers that they were unable to sell their crop at the procurement centres on MSP because of the lackadaisical attitude of the centre in-charge and their inclination towards private buyers who buy crops at lower price taking advantage of their financial constraints.
District magistrate Aunjaneya Kumar Singh said, “The delay in crop weighing and the presence of moisture give an opportunity to the middlemen to come into play. We have decided to establish extra weighing units and such surprise visits will continue to ensure farmers are able to get the MSP for their crops.”
