The unwillingness on the part of some States to allow direct marketing or private markets, over protection to existing marketing channels and trade, and movement restrictions on certain commodities, are some of the challenges in catalysing rural and agri supply chain, U.K.S. Chauhan, Joint Secretary (Agricultural Marketing) and Agricultural Marketing Adviser, said on Tuesday.

Addressing the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) conference on ‘Winning with Intelligent Supply Chains’, Chauhan said with regard to logistics, the challenges lay in aggregation of produce at the farm gate, getting the required quality, management of perishables, high cost of cold chain facilities and lack of cargo handling facilities at rail heads, airports and seaports.
