The rate of subsidy ranges from 35% to 75% of the eligible project cost subject to maximum specified limit depending on the scheme and location of the project. Two proposals under the scheme ‘Integrated Cold Chain and Value Addition Infrastructure’ and one proposal under the scheme ‘Creation of Backward and Forward Linkages’ have been approved in the district of Jalaun in the Bundelkhand region.
