NEW DELHI: The Government has made it mandatory for all canteens and stores of the central armed police forces to sell only locally made products procured through the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC).
“The move will open great employment opportunities for farmers, unemployed youths and lakhs of people already engaged with cottage and village industries,” the KVIC stated.
An order to this effect has been issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on May 15, 2020 that will come into force from June 1, 2020.
Now, only Indian products will be sold through the central armed police forces (CAPF) canteens which will be procured from KVIC. The decision will also impact the production and sales of KVIC which will be fulfilling the majority of supplies at these stores, the commission said. (AGENCIES)
