Open pilferage of Mid-day meal ration by FCSCA storekeepers
Deduct 2 kilograms as cost of sack from every pack

Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 9: The storekeepers of Food Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs (FCSCA) have been involved in open pilferage of mid-day meal ration, reports said, adding that they deduct two kilograms of ration from each sack of rice, on the pretext of cost of sack.
Teachers working in district Kathua informed Early Times that when they went to lift mid-day meal ration supply from the stores of FCSCA, the officials deducted 2 kilograms of rice for each sack of 50 kilograms of rice.
"These officials are giving a weird logic to justify the irregularity. They claim that they are getting rice but not the sacks and if the teachers need 50 kilograms of rice, then they have to bring empty sacks", the teachers said, adding that it was not possible for teachers to bring empty sacks, due to which every time, these storekeepers deduct 2 kilograms of rice from each sack of 50 kilograms.
The teachers further said that initially they half-heartedly accepted their logic but the officials made clear that the supplier was supposed to provide the sacks.
The teachers further said that every month they got 12 quintals of rice. "We don't know whether the sacks have 50 kilograms of ration or not as the officials never weigh the sacks in front of the teachers. Moreover, they deduct 2 kilograms from each sack and 4 kilograms for one quintal", they said, adding that against the sanctioned quota of 12 quintals, they got merely 11.50 quintals of ration, as 48 kilograms are deducted as cost of 24 sacks.
The teacher further said that they had discussed the matter with their counterparts in other districts, who echoed the same story of deduction of 4 kilograms of ration against one quintal of rice.
The teachers further said that such scandal has been going on for the last many years and many officials were involved in the entire matter. "Moreover a weight bridge must be placed at the stores, so that the teachers got the ration supply after proper weight. There is no transparency in the supply as many sacks are usually 45 kilograms in weight as already ration has been pilferage by the officials", they said and sought a proper investigation in the entire matter to unearth the entire scandal.
