(a) to (d): A Statement is laid on the Table of the House. 



STATEMENT REFERRED TO IN REPLY TO PART (a) to (d) OF RAJYA SABHA STARRED QUESTION NO.*84 FOR ANSWER ON 9TH FEBRUARY, 2018 REGARDING GRANTS-IN-AID UNDER PMKSY.

(a): Yes Sir, Ministry of Food Processing Industries has notified the operational guidelines of Creation/ Expansion of Food Processing & Preservation Capacities scheme under Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sampada Yojana (PMKSY).

(b): The salient features of operational guidelines for release of grants under Creation/ Expansion of Food Processing & Preservation capacities scheme is enclosed as Annexure-I

(c): There are total 5 States (i.e. Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu) and 7 UTs (i.e. Andaman & Nicobar islands, Chandigarh, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu, Delhi, Lakshdweep, Pudduchery) having no Mega Food Parks assisted by the Ministry. 

(d): The share of agri-produce, Statewise as per the statistical data available with Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers welfare is enclosed as Annexure –II. 

New Entrepreneurs are being encouraged to set up their food processing units in the Mega Food Parks because Mega Food Parks have been created with the substantial investment. The Mega Food Parks has the common facilities like Cold storages, Warehouses, Common processing facilities etc. apart from having enabling infrastructure like roads, electricity & water supply etc. The infrastructure so created in Mega Food Parks with linkages to cluster, farmers and market helps reduce the capital cost, increase viability of the project and lead to optimum utilization of the infrastructure created with Government grant. 

Further, the guidelines of the Creation/ Expansion of Food Processing & Preservation Capacities scheme have since been revised w.e.f. 13.12.2017 which encourages entrepreneurs to set up the food processing units not only in Mega Food Parks but also in Agro processing Clusters and Designated Food Parks notified by the ministry from time to time.
