The allotment of space to small retailers in such cases should be done by the license issuing authority. . There should be appropriate caps both on the total number of large format retail outlets that are being granted licenses in particular areas as well as on the maximum floor area for a retail outlet.

In order to prevent the development of big private monopolies in retail trade. both at the Central as well as State levels. With a few exceptions. .

These marketing agencies should be revived and encouraged to grow and compete with private large format retailers. Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) should be involved in the administration of cold storages and procurement centres. it is also important for the Government to ensure its presence in the market. which can also invest in developing modern supply chain infrastructure. owing to various factors. these agencies have been experiencing decay.

Revenues generated from the cess can be used to create a dedicated fund to provide infrastructure support.
Handing over farmland to food retailers for contract farming should not be permitted. Farmers should be encouraged to form groups or cooperatives in order to enter into contracts collectively with corporate rather than entering into individual contracts. Contract farming should be regulated and monitored by the Government to protect the interests of farmers. It should be ensured that the farmers are not denied the opportunity of selling their produce over and above the quantity specified in the contract to other . even if there is a failure in meeting contract commitments. need to be regulated carefully by State authorities and PRIs.

The experience of the last two years shows how the free hand given to corporate players has led to shortfalls in public procurement necessitating wheat imports. This would require special initiatives from the State Governments to reinvigorate the Government agencies.
there should be rules for public disclosure of stock holding levels. To prevent cornering of stocks by private players with the associated potential for speculation. Public agencies should be empowered to purchase food grains from the private holders at pre-specified prices if their stocks exceed a specified level .Food retailers or other agribusiness companies should not be allowed to corner and hoard food grains stocks under any circumstances.
