Chandigarh, November 3 –Haryana Staff Selection Commission, Chairman, Sh. Bhopal Singh said that 11,36,894 lakh candidates had registered for the Common Eligibility Test (CET) to be held on November 5 and 6.

He further clarified that the reason for this technical glitch of duplicity in downloading the admit cards had been registered through an Aadhaar card or any other identity document or PPP at the time of registration.

In this situation, the candidate will be allowed to take the examination in the nearest examination centre by the Commission. The rest of the admit cards will be cancelled, said Sh. Bhopal Singh.

He said that such cases will be thoroughly investigated because many times it has been found that some candidates give false information even to err in the examination by increasing the chances of dummy candidates appearing for the examination with duplicate admit cards.

For agribusiness Govt. has launched a special scheme namely Crop Cluster Development Programme for the FPOs. Under this programme, a 70-90 percent subsidy is provided to FPOs for establishing Integrated Pack Houses in the Horticulture Clusters. So far, 30 Integrated Pack Houses have been established and 35 are under progress. Priority is also given to them by Agriculture Department for establishing Custom Hiring Centres.

For further promotion, the State Government is coming up with “FPO Policy 2022” Under this Policy, SFAC-Haryana is proposed to act as a State Nodal Agency to liaison with various implementing agencies and taking up some important works like registration, rating or grading, monitoring, promotion and strengthening of FPOs, including cluster formation of Horticulture and Agriculture.

This Policy will also ensure the smooth functioning of FPOs, strengthening of backward and forward linkages, strengthening of the supply chain and direct marketing or trading of produce after sorting or grading at the aggregation points. At present, more attention is being given towards diversification to increase the income of the farmers and generate more employment opportunities for them.
