ANSWER

Self suffeciency in foodgrains


SOLUTION

There is a need for self sufficient in food because lot of foreign exchange which could have been used to import capital goods is being used to import food grains. Food is the basic necessity of all human beings. India is aiming at self-sufficiency in foodgrains since Independence. India adopted a new strategy in agriculture like the 'Green Revolution' to increase the production of wheat. The success of wheat was later replicated in rice. India stands 97th in Oxfam's Food Availability Index, and 103rd in the 2018 Global Hunger Index. A country can be called self-sufficient only when it produces enough to meet its domestic needs. The country produced 275.11 million tonnes that year option ‘b’ is correct answer.
