CAPT AMARINDER ORDERS SPECIAL GIRDAWARI TO ASSESS CROP LOSS DUE HAILSTORM
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today ordered a special girdawari for assessment of crop loss due to reports of hailstorm that have lashed parts of the state.
The Chief Minister has issued a directive to this effect, asking the concerned officials of the Revenue Department to assess loss to crops, if any, through a special girdawari, said an official spokesperson.
The spokesperson said though winter rains were beneficial for the wheat crop in general, likelihood of damage due to hail must be assessed by all Deputy Commissioners and their subordinate Revenue staff. They have been also directed to submit timely reports to the State Government, he added.
