He said that instead of relying on imports, the government would have to take tough decisions to increase self-sufficiency in domestic oilseeds and create demand to achieve self-sufficiency in oilseeds and increase import duty on cheap imported oils.
Oilseeds should also be made buffer stock
He suggested that the government should also create a buffer stock of oilseeds so that when there is a demand for essential oil at the time, we should not bear the brunt of imports and should increase the import duty on imported oils by increasing production at the domestic level so that our oilseed products can be imported. Face competition. He said that due to buffer stock, the entire oilseeds will be consumed in the entire market and farmers will benefit from it.
