District Centroller , Food & Supplied, Birbhum

About :

Food & Supply Department is playing important role to provide food security to the targeted beneficiaries.  For this purpose two main functions are performed by this Department.  One is to procure paddy through CMR agencies at MSP for mitigating the distress sell of paddy by the farmers.

Birbhum being one of the major procurement district of West Bengal meets up its own requirement of rice and even it supports other deficit districts for smooth running of PDS.

The other part is to maintain the system of Public Distribution for providing food security through MR Distributor & FPS Dealer.  Beneficiaries covered under NFSA Act, RKSY-I, RKSY-II & some tribal people of 7 (seven) bordering blocks are provided with food grains through FPS for ensuring food security.  Thus enabling the Govt. to control the open market price of the food grains also.

Beside these activities the supply of Petroleum products to the consumers through K. oil dealers, Lubricating oil Dealers, LPG dealers, MS & HSD dealers, Auto LPG dealers etc are made under the supervision of Food & Supply Department.
