An extended survey was conducted to access the various marketing charges and cost incurred in different marketing channels of paddy and constrains associated with marketing of paddy. For selection of district, block, villages and respondents multi stage sampling technique was employed to know about the various marketing charges incurred during marketing of paddy. Two major channels were identified in distribution of paddy from producers to consumers. In channel I there is only one level of market intermediaries involved that is the distributors and in Channel II there is involvement of two market intermediaries namely the distributors and the retailers.
