Deputy Commissioner Jaspreet Singh today reviewed the ongoing preparations for the ensuing paddy procurement season commencing from October 1.

Directing the departments concerned for smooth and seamless procurement, Jaspreet Singh said 10.76 lakh metric tone (LMT) of paddy was expected to arrive in the mandis across the district in this season.
