Food Ministry Faces a Problem of Plenty Now

India continues to be plagued by its lack of storage and government members are struggling to find additional places to put the excess grains of this year’s harvest. As only 85% of government godown (warehouse) capacity is utilized, the government plans to use them in full and also to hire the use of private godowns. Additionally, the food ministry is considering selling wheat in the open market to retailers and bulk buyers under the “Open Market Sales Scheme” (OMSS) in order to free up more space.
