The chief minister directed the food department to set up their [procurement] centres in the last week of February so that procurement could be started right from March 1. “We are offering better support price; therefore, its benefit must pass on to the growers,” he said.

The cabinet observed that the Pakistan Steel Mills was planning to dispose of its extra land for which the cabinet said that the Steel Mills authorities were not competent to dispose of their lands. The land which they would surrender as extra land would automatically stand reverted to the Sindh government.

The cabinet directed the Revenue department to issue instructions to sub-registrar not to register any land disposed of/ sold by Pakistan Steel Mills.
