Pattanayak today said the country's foodgrain production may surpass this years record high of 277.49 million tonne(MT).
CAG rapped state-owned FCI for incurring avoidable expenses of Rs 534 crore, mainly on buying gunny bags and transportation of foodgrains.

Foodgrains will cost less from July 1 when the nation-wide GST is rolled out as the GST Council decided to exempt the daily-use commodities from the levy.
Aadhaar was made mandatory to ensure the poor get subsidised foodgrains under the public distribution system, Centre told HC.
