Corruption in Food and Civil Supplies (F&CS) department
3rd May, 2016
Monthly District Allocation
|#||District||Rice in MT||Wheat MT||Atta MT
The table given shows the district wise allocation of various items under PDS by F&CS department. According to ACAUT Nagaland survey, it has found out that most of the genuine beneficiaries do not receive their share of food grains items and the few that receive it are given food grains items of low inferior quality. It was also found out that for most part, the allocation happens only in departmental papers.
ACAUT Nagaland questions the department as to why it has still not issued Notice Inviting Tender (NIT) despite being reminded and wonders what benefits it gets from those cronies as NIT has not been called for past several years? Secondly, despite many contractors having proved their incapability by issuing power of attorney to third parties, why has the department extended their contract year after year? ACAUT Nagaland demands that the department immediately issue NIT for awarding contract for super-stockiest, stockiest, suppliers, transporters, and to immediately remove nominees as it is unconstitutional and black list all those firms who have issued power of attorney.
Further, ACAUT Nagaland also reminds the state Govt. to follow through on the assurance given by the Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan to give rice or other commodity that is a staple food in Nagaland in lieu of Atta and Wheat, as it was absurd to receive 30% of food grains which is not part of the staple diet of the Nagas.
Meanwhile ACAUT Nagaland requests all Tribal Apex Bodies, mothers, students, Youth organizations, Churches and ACAUT units of respective districts to form a public Ombudsman/Vigilance and ensure the mention allocation as shown in the chat reaches the real deserving beneficiaries.
