Sialkot – Target Increased for Wheat Procurement

The Punjab government will purchase as many as 92,298 metric tons wheat from the district of Faisalabad instead of previous target of 82,000 metric tons, stated by District Food Controller (DFC) Sialkot Muhammad Rohail Butt here on Tuesday.

He said that there was a bumper wheat yield in the district during this season, due to which the food department has enhanced official wheat procurement target for the district.

DFC revealed that the official wheat procurement will begin in the district from Thursday (May 03). All arrangements regarding procurement have been finalised, he added.
