Chandigarh, July 21

CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday directed the Finance Department to ensure that financial arrangements in terms of cash credit limit were made well in time to ensure timely payment to farmers in the kharif marketing season 2020-21.

Reviewing the preparations for the purchase of paddy in Punjab, which is likely to start from October 1, the CM said the payment to the farmers should be made within 48 hours of procurement, as was ensured during the recent rabi marketing season.

The CM asked Chief Secretary Vini Mahajan to coordinate with the authorities concerned to open more mandis to ensure social distancing in view of the pandemic so that paddy procurement could be handled effectively. — TNS
