Amritsar, May 15

Due to the awareness shown by the farmers of Punjab on the outbreak of Covid-19 and the Punjab Government’s awareness to the farmers about the dangers of fire in the fields, the incidence of wheat stubble fire in the area has come down drastically. Axion Pollution Control Board Harpal Singh said that District Amritsar and Tarn Taran have witnessed a 60% reduction in the number of fire incidents as compared to last year, which is a huge achievement.

He said that the farmers of Punjab have become aware of the environment and fertility of the land which has made it possible. He said that although the district administration has constituted teams under the leadership of revenue department to control the fire, but the need for the teams to deduct the challan was very low. He said that so far only 15 challans have been issued in both the districts and the data of remote sensing also shows that very less fires have been started by the farmers in their fields.

SDO Rajesh Sharma also appealed to the farmers to maintain the fertility of the land and to maintain a constant supply of healthy air to their body to resist Covid-19, not to burn the stubble but to make straw from it.
