The Department of Food & Public Distribution has proposed to prepare a plan on the movement of foodgrains in consultation with Food Corporation of India (FCI) and Railways. The FCI and Railways have been asked to furnish relevant inputs for formation of such a Plan. Once these inputs are received, the Department will endeavour to prepare a National Foodgrain Movement Plan.
This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Prof. K.V. Thomas in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
