Buffer Stock is the stock of foodgrains , namely wheat and rice, procured by the government through the Food Corporation of India (FCI).

The FCI purchases wheat and rice from the farmers i n states where there is surplus production.

The farmers are paid a preannounced price for their crops . This price is called Minimum Support Price (MSP).

Let’s check

  • Assertion (A): Buffer Stock is the stock of food grains, namely wheat, and rice. It is correct.

  • Reason (R): Buffer stock is procured by the government through the Food Corporation of India  (FCI).  It is correct.

  • Buffer stock procured by the government has no relation with the meaning of buffer stuck. So the reasoning is not the correct explanation of the assertion.

So, 

  • Assertion is true

  • Reason is true

  • Reason is not the correct explanation to the assertion

Thus, the correct answer is (b).
