 18.  Rice Credit Line (RCL)

 

The Civil Supplies Department has supplied rice to the community @Rs.622.89 per quintal on 12% interest per year through SERP., A.P., Hyderabad. The Community has collected Rs.7.00 per Kg from the beneficiary and paid Rs.6.23 to the Civil Supplies Department and the remaining to their expenditure ie., transportation, shortages etc.

 

Regarding RCL activities through  “Civil Supplies Department” “Open Market Purchase”.

 

In Chittoor the DPIP has been maintained separate bank accounts for RCL, and the mandal samakhyas were send their payments through DDs and cheques and it was feeded in computer and deducting payments. The DPMU is sending through cheques to the Civil Supplies Department monthly two or three times. As per the instructions of the SERP the RCL accounts were closed and the community has directed to remit the balances to the DM., APSCSC Ltd., directly through the DPMU.

The DPMU has collected balances of rice amount through the VO, MS discussing in their regular meetings. It was also discussed in district federation and APMs review meetings. Due to prolonged drought conditions the community ave failed to remit the balances. The VO and MS were pressure the community those who are having pending balances through social mobilisation.  At present the community is paying balance to the Civil Supplies Department through DPMU.

 

In Chittoor 90% of  mandals were effected severe drought  last 5-6 yrs. The method of open market purchase is not possible to implement in chittoor expect 2-3 mandals where irrigation facilities available such as projects, channels etc. The yielding of paddy in that mandals are sufficient to their mandals only.  Further the land lords are purchasing huge quantity of paddy lending money to the poor ryots . So, the Velugu has given CIFs to the poor in that mandals for paddy cultivation and groundnut cultivation etc. It is possible if velugu will support the community by financing huge amount through CIF and with the help of social mobilization to implement the RCL program through the open market purchase. If the procurement is not sufficient to the entire district from these mandals.

 

But it is not possible to implement RCL program through open market purchase in 60 to 70% mandals as these mandals are not having sufficient irrigation facilities. It is better to implement open market purchase scheme in 10–15 mandals for only 2-3 months.

 

As per recommendation by VOs and MS the DPMU thinking that to stop migration of POP better to continue this by intervention (Food Security) for the welfare of POP & Poor and to needy people.  It helps a lot for the strengthening of VO & MS by setting faith on these community based organisations.      

 

“It is better to implement RCL activities through the Civil Supplies Department instead of Open Market System. “
