Mumbai – Agricultural shopkeepers selling seeds at high prices in the state will now be under pressure. State Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde has taken an aggressive stance in this matter. B-seeds are available in abundance and the additional demand for fertilizers will also be met in the coming weeks. Now the distribution system of seeds, fertilizers, pesticides etc. will be strictly monitored and along with the Agriculture Department, the Police Department will also keep an eye on it.

Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde held a state level meeting in this regard today. Kharif crops in each district, availability of seeds and essential fertilizers, rainfall so far, sowing so far, sale of seeds so far, crop loan distribution figures in the concerned district and a comprehensive review of previously distributed or pending crop insurance were discussed in this meeting which lasted for about four hours. Dhananjay Munde understood the department-wise facts of each district through this meeting.

Additional three Bharari squads

To stop the sale of seeds at high prices and other wrongdoings, now three Bharari teams should be taken in each district instead of one and if any wrongdoing is found, then these Bharari teams should make surprise visits to at least 25 shops daily. Action should be taken to suspend the license by filing a case on the spot. by the government Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde directed that every district should announce its emergency helpline and WhatsApp number at the local level, the Collector and District Superintendent Agriculture Officer should personally attend to the complaints and redress those grievances within an hour.

action in place

At the taluka level, at least ten dummy shoppers should be sent to different shops in each taluka every day to verify prices and other matters and if any irregularity is found anywhere, immediate action should be taken on the spot. Dhananjay Munde also said in the meeting that do not come under anyone’s pressure and if there is any problem, contact me directly. Dhananjay Munde has instructed the Superintendents of Police of all the districts that at least one Sub-Divisional Police Officer should be appointed as the coordinator for the Agriculture Department through the police force in each district and he should take care of the process of full-time availability of police cooperation for this work.

action in next two days

Dhananjay Munde also suggested that complaints are being received about the germination capacity of soybean after sowing, so a campaign should be launched from now to check the germination capacity of farmers, along with this, fertilizer samples should also be tested from time to time. It is mandatory to implement all these actions in the next two days. Dhananjay Munde also said that wherever there is a need or where there is a shortage of officers, we will take a decision at the senior level to take the help of officials of the Revenue and Rural Development Department.

Increase the objective of crop loan allocation

In some districts, the amount of rainfall is less, so sowing will also be delayed. Due to this and other reasons, at present the target of crop loan distribution in the state has reached an average of 35 to 40 percent. However, considering the experience of every year, the target of crop loan allocation should be more than 75 percent by the end of June and also suggested that every district collector should review this issue every week at his level. According to Dhananjay Munde, suggestions have been put forward by some collectors regarding crop insurance in some districts including seed bank, shade net, all these suggestions should be informed to the Agriculture Department in writing and a separate meeting will be taken in this regard.
