The Paddy Marketing Board (PMB) will expedite the paddy purchasing process in consultation with the District Secretaries and farmer societies soon, on Trade, Consumer Affairs, Cooperative Development Minister Johnston Fernando’s directive.
PMB officials will discuss on how this process could be streamlined with the Puttalam District Secretary and farmer society representatives tomorrow and they expect to meet District Secretaries and farmer societies in other districts in the days to come.
The Ministry issued a specific directive to the PMB yesterday to empty all PMB stores in the paddy cultivating districts to accept more paddy from the farmers in the Eastern, North Central, North Western and Northern provinces.
