Steps afoot to provide better service to customers, says Joint Collector
The district administration is planning to open three more rythu bazars in the district. A new rythu bazaar will come up at Vidyadharapuram, while one each will be established at Kankipadu and Kaikaluru, according to Joint Collector Gaurav Uppal.
Dr. Uppal inspected the rythu bazar at Swaraj Maidan here on Wednesday. He said that the proposals would be discussed with the Principal Secretary Ratna Kishore and Kankipadu rythu bazar would be opened shortly. Additional Estate Officers would be appointed at Patamata and Swaraj Maidan rythu bazars. The government permitted to take up repair works in rythu bazars at a cost of Rs. 30 lakh and permission for another works with Rs.37 lakh was awaited, he said.
The district administration was taking all possible measures to provide better services to customers at rythu bazars across the district. Tehsildars were appointed as special officers to monitor the functioning of the 14 rythu bazars located across the district.
Identity cards were issued to farmers to ensure that genuine farmers would sell their produce at the bazars and weed out the bogus farmers. Estate Officers need to be appointed at some important rythu bazars in the district, he said, adding, the process would be initiated in next few days. With the cooperation of Police Commissioner, the police constables were posted at rythu bazars to avoid untoward incidents. And, necessary arrangements were being made for parking lots at rythu bazars, he added.
