Wheat purchase from March 15, 2617 farmers registered

Mirzapur, 17 February (HS). For the first time, 96 centers have been identified in Mirzapur for purchasing wheat from farmers. Wheat procurement will start at these centers from March 15. Farmers have started registering for this. So far 2617 farmers have also registered.

Paddy procurement is still going on in the district, but the government has identified wheat procurement centers for the convenience of the farmers. The District Food Marketing Department has started registration of farmers by identifying 96 centers in the district. Wheat will be procured from March 15 to June 15. The support price of wheat has been fixed at Rs 2275 per quintal, an increase of Rs 150 compared to last year.

District Food Marketing Officer Dhananjay Singh said that registration of farmers selling wheat has been started on the Food Department's portal FCS.UP.gov.in. Before selling wheat, online registration and renewal can be done on the Food Department portal through any public convenience centre, cyber café, mobile phone and mobile app. Farmers who have registered for purchasing paddy do not need to register again for selling wheat. They just have to renew their registration. There is a system of OTP based registration for selling wheat.

For farmer registration, enter your mobile number and complete the registration process by filling the OTP sent through SMS. If the farmer himself is not present at the procurement centers at the time of sale, it is mandatory to feed the details and Aadhaar number of the nominated member of the family in the registration form.
