Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder on Sunday warned the officials concerned of jail and fine if negligence is found in the distribution of products under OMS programme.

The minister said if OMS products are distributed through cards, the tendency of taking rice and flour more than once will be stopped.

It will also be easy to identify whether the cardholder is from other area and it will be possible to reach OMS goods to the real poor people, he added.

He said 14 lakh beneficiaries will be able to collect OMS rice and flour through this special card and more beneficiaries will be brought under the programme in the future .

He instructed the officials concerned to remain watchful so that there is no duplication in the card disbursement.

The food minister said farmers will lose interest in production if they do not get a fair price for their produce.     —UNB
