Food Department Punjab has issued a policy statement regarding the delivery of wheat

Lahore (Daily Pakistan Online) Department of Food Punjab has issued a policy statement regarding the delivery of wheat. According to the spokesperson of the Punjab Food Department, the Punjab Food Department has not imposed any restrictions on the delivery of wheat and according to the policy of the Punjab government, inter-provincial and inter-district transportation of wheat is fully permitted. The spokesperson of Punjab Food Department has said that according to the Wheat Purchase Policy 2024, the transportation of wheat is fully permitted and the Food Department of Punjab has not issued any notification regarding the ban on wheat delivery. He said that there is no need for any kind of permit for the delivery of wheat. Some circles are linking a letter written by the federal government to prevent smuggling of various commodities with the shipment of wheat, which is based on a complete misunderstanding. In the light of the instructions of the Federal Government and the Interior Department, letters were written for the deployment of vigilant and honest staff at all check posts to prevent smuggling of various items. However, delivery, purchase and sale of wheat and inter-provincial and inter-district transport are fully permitted. The staff posted at the check posts will keep records of wheat delivery as per their responsibility so that it is known to which district and province how much wheat has been sent.

The spokesman said that like other commodities, it is important to keep record of wheat so that later certain elements cannot create an impression of artificial shortage in the market. Wheat is abundant in Punjab and being the food basket of Pakistan, Punjab also fulfills the nutritional needs of other provinces. In this context, wheat is also being sent to other provinces without interruption as per the requirement.
