SRIKAKULAM: Joint Collector E. Sridhar has stated that all measures have been taken by tehsildars for a hassle-free supply of paddy seed and fertilizers to farmers. He revealed that certified seed was being supplied by the government in all the mandals at subsidised prices. Steps were taken to deal with any security problem at the time of supply of seed as there would be a lot of rush at counters. He said that 50 per cent of the seed was certified seed involving 46,772 quintals. He said that 33,000 quintals of seed had already reached the warehouses and 22,400 quintals had been distributed to all mandals. Meanwhile, at a separate meeting, Mr. Sridhar instructed all the officers concerned to address people’s grievances within one week after receiving the same.
