PASSCO purchases over 600,000 MT of wheat

Pakistan Agriculture Storage and Services Corporation (PASSCO) purchased more than 600,000 metric tonnes (MT) wheat in the current season.
Distribution of `Bardana’ (empty bags) continues at wheat procurement centres of PASSCO in various parts of the country under a fair and transparent policy, managing director Maj Gen Tauqeer Ahmed said on Thursday after visiting various wheat procurement centres.
Strict vigilance was being done by our officers nominated for the task, he said.
He said during his recent visit wheat growers from various zones had expressed confidence in the transparent procurement policy of PASSCO.
He further said he had issued instructions to field officers to strictly follow the criteria laid down under the wheat procurement policy 2013. “We want to ensure that farmers get due return of their produce and avoid all types of discounts they have to face by the hands of middlemen,” he said.
“Stability in the price of wheat is our prime object to protect interests of farmers,” he said. He said presence of PASSCO in the market to procure wheat from farmers was a solid reason behind stability of wheat prices.
