The state government of Haryana has decided to build silos having capacity of 6 lakh metric tonnes in the State.
A decision in this regard was taken in the meeting chaired by Chief Minister, Manohar Lal to review the progress of various projects being undertaken in the State with the assistance of NABARD.
This will be done under the Warehouse Infrastructure Fund of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) for providing sufficient storage facilities of foodgrains. A Rs 200 crore project would be sent to NABARD within next 15 days for approval.
The CM said that the State Government has purchased several crops on the Minimum Support Price (MSP) in the State. Apart from wheat and rice, each and every grain of bajra, sarson (mustard) and sunflower is being purchased and for this, sufficient storage capacity is required to store the produce after procurement.
