Online portal to collect data from warehouses

The Centre has developed an online portal to collect details about government and private warehouses, a move that will enable monitoring of storage availability on a real-time basis, a senior Food Ministry official said on Tuesday.
This will also help to know real-time foodgrain stock available in any of the warehouses in the country, he said.
The portal has been designed in view of the delay in timely collection of warehouse data, and lack of platform to collect private warehouse details and storage capacity, he added.
According to the official, “Creation of an online portal is a step closer to achieve the objective of National Food Security Act (NFSA) in a transparent manner.”
