Farmers’ listing

JEYPORE: The Koraput Central Cooperative Bank (KCCB) has extended the last date for registration of farmers’ names for paddy procurement by five more days.

The date has been extended till September 20.

According to sources, the registration process got  slowed down in the absence of Aadhaar cards of farmers in different villages.

The date was extended on the request of farmers of different pani panchayats under Upper Kolab projects of Jeypore.

About 4,000 farmers are yet to register their names for kharif paddy procurement in Jeypore in the absence of mandatory Aadhaar cards.

According to sources, kharif paddy has been cultivated in over 45,000 hectares of land in Jeypore, Kotpad, Borrigumma, Kundra and Boipairugda blocks by about 18,000 farmers.

Though the cooperative societies started functioning a month back on the direction of Civil Supplies department with a target to complete all formalities by September 15, the process was hit due to delay in distribution of Aadhaar cards.

KCCB Manager and in-charge of farmers registration cards Arun Dash clarified that about 15,760 farmers have already registered their names and the bank has agreed to offer five more days to register their names.
