Peddapalli: District in-charge Collector S Prabhakar Reddy ordered the rice millers to handover the food grains on time that were collected from IKP (Indira Kranti Padakam) centers.
He chaired a review meeting with the officials of Civil Supply department and the owners of rice mills, at the Collectorate conference hall here on Thursday.
Speaking at the meeting, the in-charge Collector pointed out that some of the rice millers are delaying the handing-over of food grains. This year, only 25 per cent of the rice millers handed over the food grains out of the total allotted to them till date, he stated.
He alleged that a few rice millers must give more than 40 to 50 per cent of food grains that was allotted to them, but they are delaying the supply of food grains. He ordered them to handover the food grains before September 25.
A review meeting will be conducted on September 25. Those who fail to hand over the food grains that was allotted to them, will not be allowed to process further.
The responsibility of processing food grains will be allotted to other rice millers, who completed 100 per cent of processing food grains, Prabhakar Reddy warned.
District Civil Supply Officer Rehaman and the owners of rice millers were present along with the officials of Civil Supply Department.
