Jammu: The administration has dispatched about 70% of monthly allocation of foodgrains and Kerosene to various parts of Jammu region, an official spokesman said here today.
The supply position of wheat, rice, sugar and Kerosene oil in all ten districts of the division is quite satisfactory, he said adding that special attention has been paid to ensure uninterrupted distribution of foods and other essential commodities in far-flung districts like Kishtwar, Doda, Rajouri, Poonch and Ramban.
The Food Corporation of India (FCI) has also been instructed to augment supplies in Poonch and Rajouri districts, the spokesman said.
The Consumer Affairs and Public distribution Department has reviewed the situation and intimated that all the items including Kerosene oil have been dispatched in the region, he said.
However, the stockists of kerosene oil are facing problems in making payments to the companies through demand drafts due to closure of banks, the official added.
