- The scheme helps in keeping food inflation under check
- The liquidation of food grains will be carried out by FCI through e-auctions only.
Which of the above is / are correct statements?
FCI in 2013-14 started e-auction of wheat along with the physical tenders but in 2014-15 it has switched over entirely to e-auction mode helping the buyers with its ease of operations, transparent tendering and clean bidding process.
