The Visakhapatnam district administration has decided to alter the functioning of rythu bazaars from February 1. The decision was taken on the basis of a three-member committee report. The committee studied rythu bazaars and irregularities in their functioning and made the suggestions. Committee members carried out surprise checks at all rythu bazaars in Visakhapatnam, said deputy director marketing department P Papa Rao.
One of the significant recommendations made in the report is that shops allotted to Dwakra communities in farmers’ markets should be selected and allotted to newcomers in accordance with rules in place for those who have completed three years as per government order number 29.
The report further recommends the following: all farmers should issued identity cards and new cards should be issued every six months and that rates should be fixed at 10am and remain consistent throughout. The report states that in order to carry out allocation of shops in a transparent manner, a website should be set up to receive applications, allotments, receive complaints and make information available to the public.
