J&K Sheep & Sheep Products Dev Board disbanded

I&C Dept to prepare a scheme for marketing of wool

JAMMU: The Administrative Council (AC), which met here on Saturday under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha, approved the proposal of the Animal, Sheep Husbandry & Fisheries Department to wind up the J&K Sheep & Sheep Products Development Board.

The decision was taken considering that there has been no significant on-ground impact on production and marketing of wool and wool based product.

 

The Administrative Council further directed the Industries and Commerce Department to prepare a scheme tailored to the marketing needs of wool producers and provide Government support towards ensuring a remunerative price for woollen products.
