Karnal, October 15
Tall claims by the federal government on clearing paddy funds inside 72 hours appear to be falling flat as a majority of farmers have been awaiting dues even round three weeks after the procurement of their produce.
The procurement started on September 27 and until October 13, 5.53 lakh MT paddy had been procured, stated an official.
Extra Chief Secretary (Meals and Civil Provides) PK Das stated, “The dues of farmers whose paddy was procured on-line after October 1 will likely be launched first. The funds of these whose produce was procured offline could take a while.”
