With the resounding success of Special Campaign 2.0, Food Corporation of India is now gearing up for Special Campaign 3.0, which is slated to launch on October 2, 2023.
Food Corporation of India (FCI) has announced the successful completion of its special drive 2.0 to dispose of backlogs, aimed at improving efficiency and cleanliness across its various facilities. From October 2022 to August 2023, FCI ran the campaign at 760 sites, yielding significant results.
One of the prominent achievements of the campaign is the production of Rs. 30 lakhs by way of scrap disposal proceeds. Additionally, FCI was able to eliminate around 3 lakh old files, creating more than 50,000 square feet of additional space for its operations. These achievements indicate FCI’s commitment to streamlining its operations and promoting cleanliness in its premises.
Special Campaign 2.0 was launched with the primary objective of enhancing efficiency within Ministries and Departments. Focusing on resolving pending issues and sachhata (cleanliness), FCI aims to enhance its capabilities to ensure that high quality food grains reach the beneficiaries across the country. The cleanliness campaign played an important role in improving the maintenance and operation of FCI warehouses.
Innovative measures were taken to improve operations during the campaign. A comprehensive records management system was introduced, and digitization efforts were accelerated. These measures, combined with optimal space utilization, led to a more streamlined and efficient operation within FCI.
The scope of the campaign was wide, covering all FCI premises, including headquarters, zonal offices, regional offices, district/divisional offices, depots, warehouses, and other centers across the country.
FCI maintains food security in India by procuring wheat and paddy from farmers at Minimum Support Price (MSP) and distributing these grains through an extensive network of fair price shops in 28 states and 8 Union Territories. I play an important role. The success of Special Campaign 2.0 has further strengthened FCI’s ability to fulfill its mission.
Throughout the campaign period, progress was closely monitored, and updates were provided on the SCPDM portal of the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG). www.pgportal.gov.in/scdpm.
This ongoing commitment to efficiency, cleanliness and transparency ensures that FCI continues to play a vital role in securing the country’s food supply.
