Agri task force to give report to NITI Ayog in 14 days

Bhubaneswar: As per the recommendation of the NITI Ayog, the task force, set up by the State government for the integrated development of agriculture in the State, will submit its recommendations by June 15.

Talking to mediapersons after the first meeting of the task force today, the Agriculture secretary said the panel will also recommend how to improve the fisheries, animal husbandry and horticulture, apart from agriculture.

Six sub-groups have been formed for this and each will submit its report to the task force. The panel would, however, finalise its recommendations on the basis of the sub-groups’ report within two weeks, he added.
