Admn to act tough against stubble burning

Tribune News Service

Tarn Taran, October 22

The district administration has warned of strict action against panchayat members, village nambardars, government employees and farmers, who have procured machinery on subsidy, if they burnt crop residue in their fields. 

Deputy Commissioner (DC) Pardeep Sabarwal said action would be taken against owners of the land in case they had given it on lease and tillers burnt crop residue. A red entry in revenue records of land owners would also be made for violation of the ban, he said. 

He said nodal officers for villages to help farmers with technical knowledge and machinery for management of crop residue had also been appointed. “The farmers should get in touch with their respective nodal officers for assistance in case they need machinery and technical help,” he said. 

The purpose behind the order was not to harass anyone but to make sure that government guidelines against burning of crop residue were followed.
