sir, who will recommend the msp for mfp items.

sanjeet kumar;administrative officer jascolampf Ranchi May 27, 2015 10:32 PM

Procurement target must be fixed 60%of total total production;
Value added programme must be replicate in village level so that beneficiaries may get double benefit of the scheme;
Dispose plan through exporter/related application industries so loses may be minimies and get profit
Insure quality product
