Kakinada: East Godavari Joint Collector A Mallikarjuna has said that efforts are being made to supply rice mixed with fortified nutritious kernels to welfare hostels and for mid day meal for schoolchildren.
He reviewed procurement arrangements for both paddy and rice in the present khariff season in 2018 at district Collectorate here on Saturday evening.
The JC asked the officials of State Civil Supplies Corporation (SCSC) and Food Corporation of India (FCI) to get ready for the season and for linkage of the godowns to the nearest rice miller, who provides bank guarantee for stocking rice after custom milling.

The JC also directed the civil supplies authorities to see that one technical person presence at the purchase points of paddy to check the quality.
