KP Food Dept allows subsidy to growers on wheat transportation – 02:40 PM – September 17, 2016

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Food Department has allowed a subsidy of Rs100 per 100 kilogram on transportation charges of wheat being procured in the province.

The provincial Food Department has directed all Divisional Assistant Directors Food (DADF) and District Food Controllers (DFCs) to comply with the decision allowing subsidy to the growers and cultivators on transportation charges on the procurement of wheat.

Interestingly the subsidy has been allowed at a time when the wheat has already been purchased and procured at a cost of Rs3250 per 100 kg under the state trading arrangements. The state trading of the provincial government covers wheat procurement, which is kept separate from all other transactions of the provincial government. Funds required for procurement of wheat are normally obtained from commercial banks and guaranteed by the government.

The provincial government has estimated an amount of Rs101,905.000 million to be arranged for the procurement of wheat during the current financial year. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is historically wheat deficit province and purchases wheat from Punjab and Pakistan Agricultural Storage and Supplies Corporation (PASSCO) and import from abroad through federal government for meeting its wheat requirements.
