The Finance Minister reaffirmed the government’s commitment to constructing strategic reserves of vital commodities (sugar, wheat, pulses, edible oil/ghee, etc.) in order to maintain price stability and prevent excessive profiteering and hoarding.

The strategic reserves would guarantee the timely availability of essential commodities to close the supply-and-demand gap. In this regard, the Finance Minister instructed the Secretary M/o NFS&R to develop a concrete strategy and present it to the committee for discussion and approval.
