In the Janjgir-Champa district, the department has to contend with the problem of gunny problem occurring in the last days of paddy procurement, even before the start of procurement. This time, a target has been set to purchase 80 lakh quintals of paddy in the district. To buy this much paddy, two crore gunny bags are required, but the department has only 60 lakh gunny bags. Due to Bardana, the procurement in the district is being affected.
The department has mobilized the old gunny bags in some way, but there is a serious crisis of new gunny bags. Due to this, purchases are being made in torn and gunny bags. Paddy procurement has started in the 230 centers of the district from farmers on support price from December 1. There are more than a dozen centers where procurement is being affected due to insufficient gunny bags. Procurement is also delayed. In this situation, there is a lot of arrival from the beginning.
