Open Market Sale Scheme

Food Corporation of India sells surplus stocks of wheat and rice under Open Market Sale Scheme (Domestic) at pre-determined prices through e-auction in the open market from time to time to enhance the supply of food grains, especially wheat during the lean season and thereby moderate the open market prices specially in the deficit regions. Quantum for sale of wheat and Grade ‘A’ rice under OMSS(D) during 2019-20 has been fixed as 100 LMT and 50 LMT, respectively.
