He said Haryana has a bumper wheat crop this year, leading to the expectation of a higher volume of crops for sale in mandis. He directed officers to be fully prepared to ensure that farmers do not face any inconvenience.

The chief secretary instructed officers to verify the crops registered by farmers on the “Meri Fasal Mera Byora” portal by Monday evening, emphasising that farmer satisfaction is our top priority. He also directed the deputy commissioners to ensure the smooth functioning of Atal Canteens in mandis.

Prasad instructed procurement agencies to ensure timely lifting and stocking of the purchased crops. The chief secretary highlighted that grain silos have been designated as procurement centres for the convenience of farmers, allowing them to directly sell their crops there.
