A Buffer Stock is the stock of food grains, namely wheat and rice procured by the government through Food Corporation of India (FCI). The food procured by the FCI is distributed through government regulated ration shops among the poorer section of the society. In the beginning the coverage of PDS was universal with no discrimination between the poor and non-poor. Over the years, the policy related to PDS has been revised to make it more efficient and targeted. The PDS has proved to be the most effective instrument of government policy over the years in stabilising prices and making food available to consumers at affordable prices. Ration shops keep stock of food grains, sugar, kerosene oil for cooking. These items are sold to people at a price lower than the market price. Any family with a ration card can buy a stipulated amount of these items. The cooperatives are also playing an important role in food security in India especially in the southern and western parts of the country.
