Punjab Mandi Board has been providing Weigh Bridges in
49 mandis in order to ensure proper
weighment of the produce brought by the farmers under the DMI Scheme. In order to
increase operational efficiency of these Weigh Bridges, these have now been given on lease to private parties. The installation work of 33 Electronic Weigh Bridges has been completed out of 49. Now
the scheme for installing electronic weigh bridges in
markets by giving land on long lease basis to private
parties has also been initiated.
