Of 25 locations, in the first phase, 6 sites are operational and 7 are in final stage of construction. This PPP model will help FPCs meet their need for modern infrastructure for onion storage and market linkages. This venture is a year-long assignment that involves tripartite agreements with farmer producer companies. Since there is lack of adequate infrastructure for onion storage in the country, Nafed has decided on a PPP model to provide infrastructure. The total project is estimated at Rs 25 crore. MahaFPC has entered into long-term leases for the land required for the project from member farmers. Farmers will be able to get short-term receipt finance through financial institutions under the Warehousing Development & Regulatory Authority scheme. This project has direct ownership of 2500 farmers and will benefit 25000 onion producers through interstate trade, linkages with corporate buyers, retail chains etc. These facilities will acts as alternative marketing channel for the farmers wherein artificial intelligence will be used for backward linkages and electronic platform for marketing etc.
