  4. Food Security India attained self-sufficiency in food by late 1980s, though food security stil evades the country. Food security means making food available at affordable prices at all times, to all, without interruptions Though India's GDP growth has been impressive and the agricultural production has also increased over the past few decades, hunger and starvation still persist among the poorer sections of the population Two important things need attention regarding India's food security Around 27 per cent of India's population is BPL and a greater portion (one conservative estimate puts it at 75 per cent) of their household income is spent on food. There is a strong correlation between stability in agricultural production and food security. Volatility in agricultural production impacts food supplies and can result in spikes in food prices, which adversely affect the lowest income groups of the population

  5. Food Security India needs to tackle mainly two hurdles- Enhancing its food production : If food (i.e., foodgrains) is to be supplied to all today India will face deficit of around 30 million tonnes of foodgrains. This shows the food insecurity dimension of India Strengthening supply chain: Managing the issues like storage, transportation, proper retailing and integrating the segmented agri markets into a national agri market Minimum Support Price (MSP) is a form of market intervention by the Government of India to insure agricultural producers against any sharp fall in farm prices. The minimum support prices are a guarantee price for their produce from the Government The major objectives are to support the farmers from distress sales and to procure food grains for public distribution. In case the market price for the commodity falls below the announced minimum price due to bumper production and glut in the market, government agencies purchase the entire quantity offered by the farmers at the announced minimum price

  6. Impact PDS & FOOD SUBSIDY The Public Distribution System (PDS was changed to Targeted PDS in 1997) strives to ensure food security through timely and affordable distribution of foodgrains to the BPL population as this section can not afford to pay market prices for their food. This involves procurement of foodgrain at MSP by the Government, building up and maintenance of food stocks, their storage, and timely distribution, making foodgrains accessible at reasonable prices to the vulnerable sections of the population. Over the time, several discrepancies seeped into the PDS, such as, a) High operation costs b) High levels of leakages c) High administrative costs d) Corruption e) Mismanagement

  7. AGRICULTURE MARKETING India's agrimarket is presently regulated by the Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) Act enacted by the state governments There are about 2,477 principal regulated agrimarkets and 4,843 sub-market yards regulated by the respective APMCs in India Thus, India has not one, not 29 (number of states) but thousands of agricultural markets This Act notifies agricultural commodities produced in the region such as cereals, pulses, edible oilseed, fruits and vegetables and even chicken, goat, sheep, sugar, fish, etc., and provides that first sale in these commodities can be conducted only under the aegis of the APMC through the commission agents licensed by the APMCs set up under the Act.
