Urban Development Minister Suresh Bhardwaj today chaired a meeting on the marketing of apple produce with the Horticulture Produce Marketing and Processing Corporation, Agriculture Produce Marketing Corporation, HIMFED and HP State Agriculture Marketing Board here.

He issued directions to officials concerned to check illegal practices in market yards.

APMC chairman Naresh Sharma said strict action was being taken against those found guilty of illegal practices in the market yards. He said CCTV cameras would be installed in the market yards for curbing such practices.

The minister also directed the HP State Agriculture Marketing Board to regulate the transportation of apple and sensitise growers about the market so that they do not panic. “Good quality apples are getting good price in the market, so horticulturists should have faith in the government,” he added. — TNS
