Our vendors (farmers) transfer their "annual" crop harvested to us on "Consignment". The items are billed as and when the items are sold for the quantity sold. The received quantity reflects in the inventory even though it is not billed.
It is a industry wide practice to avoid distress sale by farmers to avoid low prices during peak season.
