Pur­chase of moong, urad and soy­bean has started in 101 pur­chase cen­tres in the state and ef­forts are be­ing made to seek the govern­ment’s per­mis­sion for pur­chas­ing ground­nuts, co­op­er­a­tive Min­is­ter Ajay Singh Ki­lak said.

Till now, 52,000 farm­ers have reg­is­tered them­selves on­line of which 20,000 farm­ers have been al­lot­ted the date and quan­tity of pro­duce for sell­ing. The value of the pro­duce has been trans­ferred on­line in the ac­count of 27 farm­ers on an ex­per­i­men­tal ba­sis and the of­fi­cers have been di­rected to trans­fer the amount soon in the ac­count of the farm­ers.

Co­op­er­a­tive depart­ment regis­trar and prin­ci­pal sec­re­tary Ab­hay Ku­mar vis­ited the pur­chase cen­tre at Kis­hangarh co­op­er­a­tive so­ci­ety and had a word with NAFED of­fi­cers to re­solve the problems faced by farm­ers on check­ing qual­ity of moong. He said the colour of moong had changed in this area and max­i­mum farm­ers were dis­missed from sell­ing their pro­duce since the sur­veyer was con­sid­er­ing it in par­tial dam­aged cat­e­gory.

Ku­mar said that till now, moong, urad and soy­bean worth Rs 24 crore have been pur­chased from over 3,000 farm­ers and the pur­chase process is set to gain mo­men­tum grad­u­ally. He said money will be trans­ferred to all farm­ers for their pro­duce by Di­wali.

With the on­line pur­chase process, farm­ers will be free from un­cer­tainty of sell­ing their pro­duce.
