Procurement of MFP by govt touches all time high, giving boost to tribal economy

@PIBMumbai
The ongoing procurement of Minor Forest Produces under the Minimum Support Price for MFP Scheme in 16 states has hit a record-breaking high with the procurement touching 79.42 crore rupees. With this, the total procurement for the year, both government and private trade, has crossed more than 2000 crore rupees.

This has proved to be a much needed panacea during the times of the Covid-19 pandemic which has disrupted lives and livelihoods of Tribals. On 26th May, the Tribal Affairs Ministry also recommended the addition of 23 new items under the MSP for MFP list.

 
These items include agricultural and horticultural produce collected by tribal gatherers. With the injection of over 2000 crore rupees in the tribal economy, the MSP for MFP Scheme can lead in the transformation of the tribal ecosystem and empowering the tribal people.

Among the States, Chhattisgarh has taken the lead by procuring 20,270 Metric tonnes of Minor forest produces worth 52.80 crore rupees. Chhattisgarh has emerged as a Champion State for its commendable efforts. With the State government putting all its might behind the implementation of the MSP for MFP Scheme, the systems and processes for procurement is well in place across all districts.
