Punjab kinnow growers to get 50% subsidy

Muktsar, July 13

Union Food Processing and Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal today said her ministry would provide 50 per cent subsidy both for storage and transportation of kinnows to consumption centres.

Harsimrat and SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal urged kinnow and vegetable growers to take advantage of the Operation Greens, a pro-farmer scheme conceptualised to make the country self-reliant.

She said the scheme had been recently extended from tomato, onion and potato crops to total (all notified horticulture) crops. It would be valid for six months starting from June 11.

She said the ministry would provide 50 per cent of the cost of the transportation of eligible crops from surplus production cluster to consumption centre and hiring of storage facilities for eligible crops for a period of three months. — TNS
