CM inaugurates growth centre at Thano

Monday, 21 September 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat inaugurated an agri business growth centre established under the Watershed Management department’s Gramya-II project at Thano on Sunday. This growth centre- Gramyanidhi, has been made for collection, processing and marketing of various agricultural and non-agricultural products of the local farmers and youths.

Rawat said that all of the 100 plus growth centres approved in the state are being prepared on different concepts. There is considerable land on which farming can be done in Thano so on the basis of farming, a number of growth centres can be made in the area. Viewing the products at this growth centre, he appreciated the packaging and branding while stressing on the need to further promote local products. He also pointed at the need for further expanding this growth centre, adding that it should also have goods enough to meet public demand soon.

The Watershed minister Satpal Maharaj informed that this growth centre will be operated by Malkoti Swayatta Sahkarita Sangh (MSSS) - an organisation of local farmers. About 257 farmers of 17 farmers’ groups in 11 revenue villages are involved in this. He appreciated the fact that MSSS had done business worth Rs 13.27 in one year including Rs 6.83 lakh profit. Stating that more than 35 agricultural and non-agricultural products are being prepared at this growth centre, he said that this centre will also benefit farmers from the neighbouring areas.

State watershed council vice chairman Jyoti Prasad Gairola and other officials concerned were also present on the occasion.
