NAMAKKAL: Special awards will be given to farmers who produce value added products, said Collector U Sagayam. He said that farmers who added value addition to their produce would be honoured from each union in the district.
This move was mooted to encourage the farmers to go for value addition, which in turn would benefit them enormously. The details could be had from Joint Director of Agriculture, Namakkal district.
The Collector, who used to stay in villages during his special grievances meetings, also assured the people of various villages that roads would be laid under NABARD scheme. While staying at Kandipalayam, a few villagers told him that they were denied house site pattas.
After inspection he found their cases genuine and ordered the issuance of pattas.
Earlier undertaking inspection at Paramathi block for the government's concrete dwelling units scheme, Mr. Sagayam visited Vadakaraiyathur and Anankur villages and verified the documents and data collected by the field staff.
He said that in Namakkal, 40,000 huts had been enumerated so far under the scheme for which 336 officials committees had been formed with 1,300 field staff.
Works in 15 panchayats had been totally completed.
Under the SSA scheme, the administration conducted two special medical camps for the differently-abled children.
In the first camp, 1,050 children had been identified and in the second 326 were chosen for various welfare measures including 11 implements such as tricycles, hearing aids, folding sticks etc.
