Cabinet gave its approval to the modifications in the Central Sector Scheme of Financing Facility under ‘Agriculture Infrastructure Fund.
Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar said, for APMCs, interest subvention for a loan upto  2 crore rupees  will be provided for each project of different infrastructure types like  cold storage, sorting, grading and assaying units and silos, within the same market yard.
Mr Tomar also informed that at present interest subvention for a loan up to two crore rupees in one location is eligible under the scheme. In case, one eligible entity puts up projects in different locations then all such projects will now be eligible for interest subvention for loan up to  two crore rupees. However, for a private sector entity there will be a limit of a maximum of 25  such projects.
