He said the Additional Collectors should play a key role in shifting paddy to rice mills. Agriculture Minister S Niranjan Reddy brought the problems being faced by the farmers in transporting paddy in Wanaparthy district to Srinivas Reddy.

Responding to the Minister’s request, Srinivas Reddy asked the Corporation Managing Director Anil Kumar to take necessary steps for shifting paddy from purchasing centres and spoke to Mahbubnagar and Wanaparthy district Collectors.

He said action would be taken against the transporters if they failed to provide vehicles as per the contract agreement.

He advised officials to coordinate with the Transport department officials to utilize the vehicles that are available for shifting paddy and added that the Corporation was receiving complaints against millers, who failed to collect the paddy in some districts.

Keeping in view of unseasonal rains, the paddy should be shifted from the purchasing centres to mills and officials should be more alert in this regard. Srinivas Reddy said as many as 25 lakh metric tonnes of paddy were purchased from 3.42 lakh farmers so far in the State.

For any assistance or complaints from farmers, the Corporation has provided a toll-free number 1967 or 180042500333. Srinivas Reddy said the TRS government would strive for the welfare of farmers. Farmers should not be panicked as the government would purchase paddy brought to the purchasing centres, he assured.
