As part of MKSP value chain activity formation of producer companies would be encouraged through this project, targeting the establishment of 14 PCs across the state. For this at state level 200 staff personnel would be trained on PC formation. Each district will identify at least one PC on any commodity as per local preference. Support would be given in the form of administration expenses, infrastructure funds and share capital.

This project would get the assistance of NABARD promotional incentive @ 2 lakh per PC.
