He asked deputy commissioners to facilitate dialogue between commission agents and farmers, urging farmers to refrain from bringing their crops to the mandis to clear space for wheat arrivals. Consequently, there will be no purchase on April 21, he said.

The chief secretary said the food, civil supplies and consumer affairs department has also authorised district authorities to utilise vehicles owned by commission agents for transporting crops from mandis to warehouses. This is aimed at bolstering the availability of transportation resources, he said. Prasad also said that payment to farmers be made within 72 hours of issuing the J-form.
