In Gorakhpur district of Uttar Pradesh, 442 purchasing centers have been set up by the Food Department to buy paddy crop. These centers are claiming to buy paddy at the minimum support price (MSP), but farmers are avoiding selling the paddy crop at these centers. Most farmers are selling the crop through stockings. Farmers say that the number of sales at purchasing centers comes very late. Farmers do not have enough time to wait for long periods of time for weighing. Therefore, it is a compulsion to avoid purchasing centers.
