. This mechanism has been perfected over a period of time. the Institute of Food Security has been positioned primarily as an in-house training centre for the Food Corporation of India. The training set-up in FCI initially consisted of 4 Zonal Training Institutes (ZTIs) and one Central Training Institute. As CTI's activities grew. CTI was given the responsibility of catering to the training requirements of Category-I & Category-II officers of FCI.TRAINING INSTITUTE OF FCI. This development took place in the backdrop of a decision to abandon the Zonal Training Institutes. This Institute in the name of "Institute of Food Security" is a training Institute where regular training programs for employees of FCI & other organizations are conducted throughout the year. Since then. The Institute became operational at its new premises from 1st August. 1997. FCI thus decided to have its own building for its Central Training Institute at Gurgaon.

The ZTIs that primarily catered to the zonal training needs of Category-III employees of the Corporation were located one in each zone except the North East.

Training and continuous development of this asset is an important management responsibility. It seeks to impart knowledge. Based on these and in alignment with the Training Philosophy. The Institute will take up training / consultancy assignments on commercial basis for external clients with the target of increasing revenue generation by at least 15% each year and to be self reliant in the long run future by out sourcing the infrastructure to other companies.
