The study brought out that he system so far has also not felt the need for handling perishable products from the state. Now, with growing consumerism due to the rising disposable income, level of education and urbanization, and the changing attitude of the younger generation, a consumer-oriented rather than production-based market system is becoming better workable. The social problems are highly associated with the economic turmoil being faced by state agriculture. Punjab Mandi Board should intervene in various ways to make some effective checks. Therefore, the role of a pivotal organization such as Mandi Boards does not end with collection of market charges and providing some stereotype facilities but its role must change with changing scenario. Various structural changes taking place in terms of resource use pattern, problems of in-migration of labour, liberalization of world trade, fast emerging environmental problems and associated general deceleration of society call for Mandi Board to extend its wings to such issues.
