Tehsildars were asked to take all steps and make sure that the farmers get minimum support price in respect of paddy and other crops. District Collector B. Sridhar directed the Tehsildars to study the problems of paddy farmers closely and ensure transparent functioning at the paddy purchase centres. \

“Many farmers do not know what is the MSP for various varieties of paddy. Tehsildars should be in a position to guide them properly and esnure that they are not exploited,” he said at a review meeting held at the Collectorate. –Staff Reporter
