Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : Increase production of oilseeds & maize

The correct answer is to Increase the production of oilseeds & maize.

  • The core idea was to increase the production and productivity of oilseeds to make the country self-reliant in this vital sector. Later Pulses, Oil Palm & Maize were brought in their ambit in the 1990s. The scheme was later restructured in 2004 as Integrated Scheme of Oilseeds, Pulses,Oil palm and Maize (ISOPOM). Hence 1 option is correct.

  • Pulses:

    • Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal.
