Hardoi. Wheat purchasing from state malls in the district may have set new records, but wheat from more than 12,000 farmers could not be purchased from state purchasing centers. Under duress, these farmers were forced to sell their wheat on the open market at a low price.
Although government procurement was only due to expire on June 15th, the government extended that deadline to June 22nd due to large numbers of farmers failing to procure wheat. By June 22nd, 1,703,566.70 quintals of wheat had been purchased by 33,570 farmers in the district. Anurag Pandey, the district’s food and marketing officer, claims that the number is 153 percent more than buying wheat last year. Aside from these claims, there is another reality. In fact, 45,592 farmers had registered to sell wheat in government procurement centers, but by the end of the purchase only 33,570 farmers had been able to buy it. This means that despite registration, the wheat of 12022 farmers could not be bought in government centers.
Bought wheat from 348 farmers in seven days
Wheat should not be procured until June 15th. The procurement deadline was extended at the government level and was on June 22nd. In those seven days, 10,278 quintals of wheat were purchased from state procurement centers by just 348 farmers in the district.
