Baloda-Bazaar: 100 per cent paddy lifted in just 29 days with zero shortage

Baloda Bazaar: 100 per cent of the paddy has been lifted from all 162 rice procurement centers in the district with zero shortage. In response to this achievement of the district administration, Collector Rajat Bansal congratulated all the officials and employees involved in the process. He said that this work has been made possible only through the active participation of food, cooperation, district marketing, district cooperative banks and committees, which has definitely saved the government from losses.

This year, 61 lakh 86 thousand 50 quintals of rice have been procured in the district at support price. A DO was issued to other districts besides Balodabazar, which led to the successful lifting of the paddy. Within 29 days, 100 per cent of the paddy has been lifted, which has created a new record. With the lifting of paddy, the warehouses have become empty. This will facilitate the storage of fertilizers and seeds during summer, said the officials.

Luckily, there was no unpredictable rainfall during the paddy procurement this time. Due to the absence of moisture problems in the paddy, millers lifted paddy at a rapid pace. For the Kharif season 2022-23, the government had set a target of procuring 63 lakh 88 thousand 530 quintals of paddy for the district. With farmers getting fair price of their produce, the area under paddy cultivation has increased.
