Govt to give 50 pc aid in air freight to items from north-east

New Delhi, Jun 21: The government today announced a 50 per cent assistance in air freight for perishable commodities from any airport in the north-eastern states to Delhi or Mumbai for exports.

The decision is part of the revised guidelines of the Inland Transport Assistance Scheme under the Export Development Fund for the north-east, which were approved by Minister of State for Commerce Jairam Ramesh today.

The state-wise list for commodities would also be done away with and the identified products such as banana, guava, lemon, orange, cut flowers, apple and bamboo from any state in the region would be eligible for transport assistance, an official release said.

This was done in view of the fact that perishable items including flowers and horticulture products required special treatment, the release said.
