Abstract
The present study was conducted to assess the organisational effectiveness Punjab Mandi Board and market committees in handling of fruits and vegetables. The stratified random sampling technique was used to select markets based on volume of market arrivals. The secondary data on various parameters such as organisational pattern, tenure of Secretary posted at one station and infrastructural facilities available in the market yard were collected from the selected market committees. The primary data were collected from farmers through personal interview method using pre tested schedule. The study indicated that organizationally the Board and market committees were highly satisfactory. The villages were linked with the regulated market by the metteled roads which were equipped with various infrastructural facilities. The farmers had to travel not more than 10 km for the disposal of their produce. Although, there are some inefficiencies and deficiencies here and there. But on the whole Punjab Mandi Board helped in orderly marketing of fruits and vegetables in regulated markets of Punjab.
