Strengthening community monitoring for reduction of PDS leakages

In the previous year's annual report, we shared about GRAAM conducting a rapid assessment study on Annabhagya (public distribution system) Yojana in Karnataka state along with the preliminary results. In this annual report, we provide details on the continued work of the project - conducting focus group discussions with farmer groups growing ragi, paddy and jowar across the state. The FGDs were conducted with the objective of understanding farmer's interest in supplying the grown produce to PDS procurement centres. The secondary objective was to analyze the factors strengthening the local production, marketing and distribution network. The discussions revealed the fact that the assured Minimum Support Price (MSP) for paddy, ragi and jowar would motivate farmers to supply the grains to PDS and thus contribute to solve the problem of grains shortage in PDS. The detailed version of FGD report is available on our website.
