Storage & Contract

5 Year PEG Scheme

Traditionally, wheat is also stored in CAP (Cover and Plinth) by State Agencies/FCI mainly in procuring regions. However, a policy decision was taken to phase out this capacity of CAP. Detailed Action Plan was prepared by FCI after deliberations with State Governments, which was approved by Government of India (DFPD) on 10.05.2022. It was also decided to create Covered capacity so that there is no requirement to use CAP in future. FCI has proposed to create a capacity of 117.75 LMT storage capacity under proposed new 5 years guarantee scheme and is approved by DFPD. Due to change in storage scenario, 13 LMT is envisaged in the first phase in Haryana (4 LMT) and in Punjab (9 LMT). Tenders have already been floated in Haryana and Punjab for the same.
