The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) on May 05, 2019 has decided to extend the date for submission of proposals for setting up integrated value chain development projects for Tomato, Onion and Potato (TOP) under Operation Green Scheme from April 30, 2020 to July 31, 2020. 

The main objectives of the Scheme for Operation Greens are:

1. Enhancing value realization of TOP farmers by targeted interventions to strengthen TOP production clusters and their FPOs, and linking or connecting them with the market.

2. Price stabilisation for producers and consumers by proper production planning in the TOP clusters and introduction of dual use varieties through convergence with the Scheme implemented by Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH) and State Governments.

3. Reduction in post-harvest losses by creation of farm gate infrastructure, development of suitable agri-logistics, creation of appropriate storage capacity linking consumption centres.

4. Increase in food processing capacities and value addition in TOP value chain by creating firm linkages with production clusters.

5. Setting up of a market intelligence network to collect and collate real time data on demand and supply and price on regional and seasonal basis to moderate and check localized gluts of TOP crops.

MoFPI had received representations from various investors and entrepreneurs requesting extension of date, based on that the last date for submission of proposal has been further extended up to July 31, 2020 by 11:59 P.M.
