The 293 traders in question are those whose licenses were being inspected by the Agricultural Ministry by forming a separate committee headed by the Dy. Secretary. In his report the Dy. Secretary says that only 70 are genuine traders while 144 have falsified records and violated norms to procure licenses. The Chairman Dwarkaprasad Kakani has stood by the report of the Committee stating that the findings of the Committee are correct.
