‘Operation Week’ is to be observed every month in the last week of a month by the Civil Supplies and Education Department officials to conduct raids on Social Welfare hostels for checking maintenance of records, food stocks, attendance of students and availability of infrastructure.

This decision was taken here on Saturday by Joint Collector Dr. Hari Jawaharlal after holding a review meeting with officials of the two departments.

He directed that the officials after the raids submit reports on their findings, with a view to improve the working of hostels.

According to the decision, ten officials are to oversee the 126 Social Welfare hostels, four Tribal Welfare institutions, thirteen 46 Kasturba Gandhi Girl’s Schools, six 68 Backward Classes hostels, nine ICDS project Balsadans and Anganwadi centres, thirty-six officials, 59 MEOs, three deputy DEOs/MRPs will keep a tab on 3,156 schools serving mid-day meals.

Fair price shops

The Joint Collector also asked each Civil Supplies Department’s deputy tahsildars to compulsorily check two fair price shops, two kerosene wholesale shops and one each LPG dealer and petrol bunk and submit reports.

He said rice and other essential items should be supplied to SW hostels only through FP shop dealers.


Dr. Jawaharlal questioned the direct supply of provisions to hostels in Nakrekal, Mothkur and Suryapet without the knowledge of the dealers.

He wanted all steps to be taken to prevent irregularities and misuse of rice.
