UP to welcome food park investors

AMN / Lucknow

Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has decided to invite private investors to set up food parks at different places in the state.

up-mapDeputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya said here Thursday that government will offer several subsidies to attract investors which include providing land at concessional rates and solve other problems including environment clearance through single window.

The minister, however, did not say as where these Food parks will be set up. “This depends on the private investors. But the Government wants that one each Food Park should be set up at the four cornors of the state,” he said hinting that these parks will come up in Purvanchal (eastern Uttar Pradesh), Bundekhand, Awadh region (central UP) and western part of the state.

Later, he also said that Parks will be come up in those regions which have transport facilities and easy market. The places where warehouses could be set up will be preferred. “These Food parks will help in generating employment as well as provide an easy market for the farmers. The ware houses will ensure that vegetables will not perish easily,” he said.

The Food Parks are set up at the cost of Rs 200 crore of which Rs 50 crore is given by Government of India as subsidy.

Incidentally, the schemes of setting up of Food Parks have been non-starter in UP. One of such projects in Amethi created a political furore as Modi Government cancelled Food park project in April 2015 whose foundation stone was laid by Rahul Gandhi on October 7, 2013. Another Food Park project is initiated by Patanjali group at the cost of Rs 1600 crore, but is yet to see the light of the day.
