Government is implementing the following scheme for construction of storage godowns in the country for storage of foodgrains in the Central Pool Stock:

Private Entrepreneurs Guarantee (PEG) Scheme for Construction of Godowns:

Private Entrepreneurs Guarantee Scheme was formulated in 2008, for construction of storage godowns in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode through private entrepreneurs, Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) and State Warehousing Corporations (SWCs) to overcome storage constraints and ensure safe stocking of foodgrains across the country. Assessment of additional storage capacities required under the scheme is based on the overall procurement/ consumption pattern and storage space already available.

Under PEG scheme, no funds are allocated by Government for construction of godowns and full investment is done by the private parties/CWC/State Agencies by arranging their own funds and also the land. After a godown is constructed and taken over, FCI gives a guarantee of rent for 10 years in the case of private investors and for 9 years in case of CWC/SWCs/State Agencies, irrespective of quantum of foodgrains stored.

Out of a sanctioned capacity of150.76 LMTunder the PEG scheme, a storage capacity of142.38 LMThas been completedas on 30.04.2019.

The State-wise and year-wise details of storage capacity created under PEG Scheme are as given under:
