Ahead of the massive wheat procurement season starting from April 1 across 417 purchase centres, Haryana’s food, civil supplies and consumer affairs department on Friday requested the DGP to set up round-the-clock nakas in all the border districts and instructed DCs “to closely monitor procurement operations” to ensure seamless arrival, purchase and lifting of foodgrains.
