Exempt agri officers from NRC
An acute manpower crisis has forced the agriculture department to urge the authorities to exempt its officials from the NRC works.
In a recent letter, the agriculture director has requested the National Register of Citizens directorate to release its personnel in view of the ongoing pest-control drive against army worms in the state which is facing the worst pest attack since 1967 with 22 of the 35 districts being affected.
Agriculture minister Atul Bora said his department had launched initiatives to control the pest attack on a "war footing" He said personnel from the agricultural department had been helping in the NRC update work but now they need their full force for the drive.
"We have written to the NRC directorate to release our personnel.," Bora said.
