I wholeheartedly convey my THANKS to you for bestowing issue of G.O.Rt.No.673, Agriculture and Cooperation Department dated 1.11.2017 appointing A.P. State Warehousing Corporation as “Nodal Agency” for private investor godowns in the state. It showed your commitment towards keeping the government foodgrains in safe hands.
The Government of India, Department of Food & Public Distribution has been issued guidelines time and again since 2000-2001 that government procured food grains should be stored in government storage agencies like FCI/CWC/SWC – in case of need private godowns can be hired through CWC/SWC only. Food Corporation of India had observed these norms till 2013–14 in the state.
APSWC had handled about 21 lakh Mt. storage capacity i.e., higher than handling capacity of CWC/FCI in the state during 2000- 2012. APSWC is having rich experience in scientific storage of food grains equipped with trained technical personnel.
APSWC is paying dividend to its shareholders i.e., State Government and CWC uninterruptedly since its inception. So far it has paid 49.67 crores upto 2016-17.
The decision of the Government appointing APSWC as “NODAL AGENCY” will help the Corporation for improvement of business besides effective functioning of DCP operations in private investor godowns with more accountability and up keeping the health of the food grains by preserving on scientific norms.
Your hard work and implacable efforts to develop the state are inspiration to me. Following your foot steps and with your esteemed cooperation we strive hard to develop the organization upto your expectations.
