The Committee was of the view that all staple food items should be placed under National Food Security and Research Division which could better deal the stock position, matters related to import and export of essential food items according to the need of the country as the food security of the country is primary responsibility of ministry of National Food Security and Research. However National Food Security and Research Division requested the CCIR that there was overlapping of certain functions of Sugar Advisory Board between Industry and Production division and National Food Security and Research division so a study may be conducted on the matter before the decision making.
