SRINAGAR: Director Agriculture Kashmir, Syed Altaf Aijaz Andrabi, on Wednesday convened a high-level meeting to review the implementation of Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) system, and to review the progress on installation of point-of-sale (PoS) machines at all the fertilizer sale centres and outlets across Kashmir Division
Altaf Andrabi said that the installation of point-of-sale machines at all the fertilizer sale outlets across Kashmir Division is one of the series of reforms adopted by the department in bringing transparency in the fertilizer distribution system. He instructed the concerned agencies to achieve 100 percent target in the installation of PoS machines in all the fertilizer sale centres across the Kashmir Division within the stipulated timeframe. He said, “These machines are connected to a server that uploads every transaction on the portal and can be monitored in any part of the country. These machines display price, quantity and other credentials of the customer, which leaves no scope for any malpractice in the system.”
He added that the department is leaving no stone unturned in introducing digitisation at its all the levels of functioning in order to strengthen transparency and accountability in the department.
“The installation of PoS machines will definitely keep a check on the black marketing,” he said.
