‘Illegal business will lead to licence cancellation'

Correspondent

NALGONDA: District Collector N. Mukteswara Rao, on Wednesday, warned Agricultural Officers and fertilizer dealers of taking stern action against them if they were found selling spurious seeds and fertilizers.

Kharif season

If traders were found conducting their business illegally – without ‘O' forms – their licences would be cancelled without any notice.

At an urgent meeting attended by department staff and 45 dealers, Mr. Rao asked officials to be on alert for a month to ensure that there was proper distribution of fertilizers in view of preparations for kharif season.

Progressive farmers

He asked them to make sure that progressive farmers interacted with ryots seeking details of their sowing and giving suitable guidance as rains were fast approaching in some areas like Alair.

The Collector assured co-operation if the dealers did not resort to illegal trading.

Display certificates

He advised them to display registration certificates, status of stocks, and prices on boards in shops to ensure transparency and to avoid any complaints.

He warned that the administration would not spare anyone if the interests of farmers were compromised, while advising the dealers to compulsorily issue bills to each ryot, specifying the village and the land survey number.

Random checks

Mr. Rao asked the Agricultural Officers to conduct random inspection on traders' premises to ensure that they complied with the directives spelled by the administration and sold fertilizers at specified prices.

Only genuine farmers should be supplied fertilizers and not others such as middlemen, the Collector said.

Joint Director of Agriculture Suryaprakash Rao was among the officials who attended the meeting.
