Procurement being a large scale operation was a matter of concern as to store the food grains is as much important as to produce. The present study depicted that state emphasized on increasing production of food grains year by year but storage systems were ignored. It also made it clear that MARKFED procured the highest quantities of food grains followed by PUNSUP, PUNGRAIN and FCI. On the other hand, damage losses to the food grains were increasing day by day due to poor infrastructure, poor management, etc. So, there is need for certain Government actions to take the matter of procurement and storage seriously and for the betterment of the state and the nation.
