DPC appeals to bring crops after receiving SMS
District procurement controller (DPC) RK Waikar appealed to farmers to bring in their wheat crop to the purchase centre only after receiving an SMS on their mobile phones. The DPC pointed out that if the farmers brought in crops of wheat without receiving an SMS, the computer system would not generate the proceeds against their sale and therefore it would not be possible for the purchase centre to purchase wheat.
