Background of One District One Focus Product Scheme
The programme, named as One District One Focus Produce (ODOFP), was announced earlier on Saturday. It took almost 9 months to design after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his interaction with officials in May last year on ways to boost the agriculture sector. PM Modi underlined the importance of developing Brand India for which agri-clusters can be promoted. The government has already set a target to achieve $60 billion agri exports by FY22.
PM-FME Scheme – Credit Linked Subsidy for Infrastructure / Marketing of ODOFP Products
Under the Rs 10,000-crore FME scheme, launched last year, two lakh micro-enterprises are targeted to be assisted with credit-linked subsidy over a five-year period to help create infrastructure and marketing of these ODOFP products. The unorganised food processing sector has nearly 25 lakh units (66% located in rural areas), which contribute to 74% of the total employment in the sector, while the remaining 25% work in the organised industries.
