Central Sector Scheme "Storage & Godowns”

Government is implementing a Central Sector Scheme for construction of godowns with focus on augmenting storage capacity in the States of North Eastern (NE) Region. This Scheme is also operative in a few other States like Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand and Kerala.

Under this Scheme, funds are released directly to FCI in the form of equity for land acquisition and construction of storage godowns and infrastructure like railway sidings, electrification, installation of weighbridge, etc.

Funds are also released as grants-in-aid to the Governments of the North-Eastern States including Jammu & Kashmir for construction of intermediate storage godowns considering the storage gaps as well as difficult geographical & climatic conditions in these States.

During 12th Five Year Plan (2012-17), a capacity of 1,17,680 MT in North Eastern (NE) States and 20,000 MT in other than NE States has been completed by FCI. In addition, a capacity of 46,495 MT has been created by State Governments.

This scheme has been extended for 6 years from 01.04.2017 to 31.03.2023. An additional capacity of 65,870 MT by FCI and 26,890 MT by State Governments has been created from 01.04.2017 to 31.03.2022.
