Expression of Interest invited for Mega Food Park in Bihar

According to a PIB release, the Government of India has approved establishment of five new mega food parks in the second phase under the Scheme for Infrastructure Development, in addition to 10 on-going project approved in the first phase. This information was given by Harish Rawat, Minister of State for Food Processing Industries in the Lok Sabha. 

For the five newly approved mega food parks, Expression of Interest (EoI) have been called for from ten states namely, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Bihar, Orissa, Rajasthan, Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala, Chhattisgarh and Tripura.

These proposals are under appraisal by a multi skilled professional agency who has been appointed as Program Management Agency (PMA). As per the laid down procedure, the merit of these proposals are required to be evaluated by a Technical Committee (TC). On the recommendation of TC, Inter-Ministerial Approval Committee selects most suitable proposal for granting ‘In-principle’ approval.

The mega food park project aimed at enhancing farmers’ income significantly. Each park was expected to benefit around 6000 farmers/producers directly and about 25000-30000 farmers indirectly.

      Today we have read news in Business Standard about this.Ozone Group, an established player in the Pharmaceutical & Consumer Healthcare segments in the country has joined hands with the Government in a unique PPP with an SPV model to facilitate setting up of a Mega Food Park Project near Guwahati with a view to enhance infrastructure for food processing and benefit the farmers and food processing industry of North East region.Ozone group being the anchor promoter of the NE Mega food park, They have also invited investors and industries to come to the North East and invest in the Mega Food Park Project, as environment in the region is very conducive for the same. The region is one of the lungs of the Earth, as it is organic by default. The industry will get lots of subsidy on their investments in terms of income tax benefits as well as power charges etc, which will make the project very lucrative for them.
