He said this will help in clearing the system at TCC.

Meanwhile, TCC is currently in the process of registering farmers using a new system labelled Biometric System.

According to Munthali, about 100,000 farmers are expected to get registered hence the farmers complaining that the process to get registered is taking a long time.
