“We will seriously consider your proposal to exempt such produce from mandi duty and cess. In the new processing policy, the government will take full care of the interests of the enterprises associated with the food processing industry,” the minister assured.

The Chief Minister added that the policy will help farmers earn better prices by selling their produce straight to the processing sector. 

Stressing upon the ‘Beej Se Bazar Tak’ approach, Yogi mentioned that only by following it, “we can create employment and also fulfil the resolve of increasing the income of the farmers”. 

Yogi also expressed his pleasure over the interest shown by entrepreneurs in considering the opportunities in the field of food processing. “I congratulate all entrepreneurs who worked in the field of MSME and food processing industries and contributed to carrying out Prime Minister Modi’s resolve to double the income of ‘Annadatas’ (farmers),” he said. 

The resolve to make UP a $1 trillion economy will be fulfilled only when the work in every sector is completed effectively with full commitment, he stated.
