Jan 24, 2018|The Economic Times|Full Article

Going beyond the promise of minimum support price (MSP) for gathering minor forest produce (MFP), the Centre plans to reach remote villages to open value addition centres in tribal households, organise tribal people in self-help groups, set up godowns for storage and initiate massive awareness programmes involving state governments and elected representatives.

The self-help groups will train tribals on how to do simple value addition to get better prices for minor forest produce they gather.
