The common infrastructure will also be available for other units and public to utilize on hiring basis for substantial part of the capacity.

vi. Capacity Building: The scheme envisages training for Entrepreneurship Development Skilling (EDP+): program modified to meet the requirement of food processing industry and product specific skilling.

The scheme aims to enhance the competitiveness of existing individual micro- enterprises in the unorganized segment of the food processing industry and promote formalization of the sector.

The objectives of the scheme are to build capacity of two lakh micro enterprises through increased access to credit, integration with organized supply chain by strengthening branding and marketing, increased access to common services, strengthening of institutions, research & training in the food processing sector.

(b) & (c): The Scheme was approved by the Cabinet in May, 2020 & guidelines were issued in June, 2020. The preparatory steps have been taken for setting up of institutional mechanism such as State Nodal Departments/ agencies etc.

The achievements made under the Scheme till date, since its inception are as under:

(i). 35 States/ UTs have nominated State Nodal Agencies (SNAs) and also constituted State Level Approval Committees (SLACs) and District Level Committees (DLCs). State of West Bengal is yet to decide on participation in the scheme.

(ii). One District One Products (ODOPs) for 710 Districts have been approved in 35 States / UTs.
