  • Statement 1 is incorrect. It has recommended reducing the coverage under NFSA from present 67% to 40%
  • Statement 2 is correct. The Food Corporation of India (FCI) must transfer procurement operations to states which have made a considerable expenditure in infrastructure. This will reduce the operating cost of FCI.
  • Statement 3 is incorrect. It recommended encouraging NWRS (Negotiable Warehouse Receipt System).
