The procurement was concluded in the month of May and stocks were stored in the State Warehousing Corporation, Huzurabad.
The Vice Chairman & Managing Director, OILFED, Telangana State Unit, Hyderabad has stated that as the new crop of sunflower is expected to arrive in the market in the month of October and November, 2015 and the rate of the stored sunflower stocks may not fetch good rate. Before commencement of new arrivals of sunflower in the market, it is proposed to sell sunflower stocks kept in SWC, Huzurabad by inviting tenders.
In this regard, he has requested the Government to accord permission and arrange to issue the guidelines for sale of sunflower seed procured under MSP during Rabi 2014-15, in Telangana State and requested to constitute committee for disposal of Sunflower procured under MSP by OILFED (Telangana Unit) during Rabi season 2014-2015 by calling tenders.
The Government after careful consideration of the proposal of the Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Telangana State OILFED, Hyderabad have decided to constitute a committee with following members for disposal of stocks of Oilseeds / Sunflower procured under MSP by OILFED, Telangana Unit during Rabi season 2014-2015 by calling traders.
1. Commissioner, Civil Supplies Department, Telangana – – – Chairman
2. The Director of Agrl. Marketing, Telangana State, Hyderabad – – Member

4. Finance Department (Representative ) – Member Joint Secretary, Finance Dept. (Sri Sai Prasad)
The above Committee is directed to meet periodically and shall be responsible for getting the quality verification of the stocks being offered for sale, fixing the reserve price, approving the terms and conditions of the tender notice, evaluating the bids and making final recommendations for approval of the sale.
The Committee would also propose a formula for fixing the reserve price. The reserve price cannot be constant and will have to vary based upon the location of the warehouse where the stocks are to be sold and the period in which the stocks are to be sold. While assessing the reserve price, the Committee could evaluate the APMC rates for the past three months and rates in future markets also and should complete entire
process of sale of procured stocks before commencement of next KMS season.
All tenders for disposal of Sunflower / Oilseed would be done through e-Tender and there will be no manual tenders for the disposal of Sunflower / Oilseed.
The bids would be called for lot-wise. Each lot would mean the stocks of a particular
procurement centre. If the stocks in a particular centre are too large, then the stocks would
be split and offered for bid separately.
Once bids are called, the Committee would meet regularly and evaluate the bids within two days and make recommendations to the State Government for approval of the bids.
The Commissioner, Civil Supplies Department, Telangana State, Hyderabad and Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Telangana State OILFED, Hyderabad are requested to take further necessary action in the matter.
