Abstract: Food Corporation of India (FCI) is a non-profit food marketing organization in India. FCI is responsible for the procurement, storage, movement and distribution of foodgrains across the country, on behalf of the Government of India. The government held foodgrains buffer stock for the monthly release of foodgrains for supply under TPDS and for meeting emergencies. Punjab is called as ‘Food Bowl’ of India since it contributes a large amount of paddy and wheat to the central pool. The present paper discusses the organizational structure of FCI and reviews the working of the Food Corporation of India in Punjab state. Moreover, the paper examines the performance of FCI in Punjab. A substantial body of literature highlights the various issues related to the functioning of FCI, with some studies being conducted in various Indian states. There is a huge gap in the literature on the functioning and performance of FCI in Punjab. The paper is based on secondary data. The data on foodgrain procurement, storage, movement, and distribution from 2014-15 to 2019-20 was collected from several issues of the Punjab Statistical Abstracts, the Economic Survey of Punjab, the Bulletin on food statistics, website of FCI, and from the annual reports of FCI. The results demonstrated that the share of FCI in the procurement of wheat and paddy in Punjab state has decreased during the study period. The research indicated that FCI in Punjab state is doing exceptionally well, but faces obstacles in terms of movement and distribution of crops.
