In view of the ongoing lockdown, the District Administration today simplified the process of securing permissions regarding the movement of essential commodities in the district. Deputy Commissioner Pradeep Kumar Agrawal said today that dedicated officials from various departments had been deputed to issue necessary permissions to citizens so that the same could be granted soon. He chaired a meeting in this regard at Bachat Bhawan.

Whom to contact for making donations

Agrawal said several NGOs or social organisations were coming forward in this hour of need. If any other organisation/persons also want to donate or contribute, they should contact the Secretary, District Red Cross Society, Ludhiana. If any volunteer wants to contribute, they can contact Dr Rishipal Singh, Additional Commissioner, Municipal Corporation, Ludhiana.

The DC said residents would have to apply with the District Food Supply Controller (DFSC) for permissions regarding food, groceries, transportation of foodgrain and food items, fresh food, mandi labour, etc; with the Secretary Regional Transport Authority for permission related to buses, autos, taxis, requisition of vehicles by the District Administration, etc; with the Chief Agriculture Officer for permissions regarding potato farming, cold storage, farmers and harvesting-related movements; with the General Manager of District Industries Centre for permissions related to industries, payment to industry labour, industry related to manufacturing items for Covid 19-control preparations, permission of food processing units and industry related to essential commodities.

The Zonal Licensing Authority (Drugs), Civil Surgeon Office, would give permissions related to medicines, pharmaceutical, supply of medicines, etc. The Deputy Director of Animal Husbandry would give permissions for poultry, fodder, animal-related issues; the Deputy Director Dairy regarding uninterrupted supply of milk; the District Mandi Officer regarding mandis and purchase centres, arhtiyas, fruits and vegetables, etc; the Municipal Corporation for street vendors/rehris; the Additional Commissioner of MC for home delivery chains of Ludhiana district.

Agrawal said for any other permission regarding individual emergency cases, permissions can be taken from respective additional district magistrates, SDMs, DSPs and assisstant commissioners of police.

To ensure that the entire process goes on uninterrupted, a 24X7 “war room” has been set up by the District Administration where senior officials would oversee the process related to permissions and complaints.
