IMPHAL July 25: Through the initiatives of several NGOs of Kumbi A/C several bags of fertilizers were distributed to farmers of Kumbi a/c this afternoon.
Karam Gyanenshwor, agent Ithai fertilizer said the fertilizer was distributed on the subsidized rate of Rs. 450 per bag as per decided by the government. He added that the fertilizers were acquired with the help of other agents under fertilizers control order act of 1985 for the benefit of local farmers keeping in view of the current situation relating to fertilizers. While briefing the media persons that were present during the distribution of fertilizers, he appealed the government to review in due course of time as the existing subsidized rate of Rs.420 lacks feasible as the agents have to pay extra charges for transportation over existing subsidized rate.
The fertilizers were given one bag per farmer to 190 farmers at a simple function held at Naodakhong community hall situated in Kumbi a/c today.
Later he mentioned that such initiatives will be undertaken for the welfare of farmers’ communities at other nook and corners of Kumbi a/c.
