BARWANI (MADHYA PRADESH): Staff who were absent, during an inspection of Chikalya, Silavad, Meenimata cooperative societies on Thursday, are all set to face the music in Barwani district of Madhya Pradesh.

During the inspection, SDM Ghanshyam Dhangar confiscated registers including attendance register.

Beneficiaries who were present at the outlet of the societies were told to record their statements to facilitate strict action against the culprits. Only 1 out 18 staff of Chikalya Society was found attending to the people who had queued up to fetch food grains, fertilisers and seeds.

SDM was told that manager of the society has been suspended due to alleged irregularities. He has failed to submit the relevant documents to the society, so the beneficiaries are facing hassles.

Seven workers of Meenimata Society were found absent; causing a delay in distribution of grains, fertilisers and seeds to the beneficiaries.

At Silavad Society, the quality of the food being distributed was found to be non-standard. After this discovery the SDM ordered that the distribution be stopped and statements of the beneficiaries be recorded.

Most beneficiaries complained that despite their repeated complaints the society has failed to improve the quality of food grains.

SDM supervised the sealing of about 700 quintals of sub-standard grains.

In view of the irregularities found in the inspection of societies and poor quality of food grains, Dhangar had sent his report to Barwani collector.

Collector Shivraj Singh Verma has directed the assistant commissioner of cooperative department to take strict action against the guilty organisation managers.
