The Uttar Pradesh Traders Welfare Board Vice-Chairman, Mr. Manish Gupta while speaking to media said that in order to promote horticulture, the State Government has decided to offer a huge subsidy for cultivation of mango, guava and amla crops. Gupta explained that if 80 percent of the crop remains for at least three years and the farmer is able to prepare the garden, then he will be given 105 percent subsidy (financial support) in 5 years. He added that 50 percent subsidy will be given in the first year of the plantation.

Gupta said that there has been a provision of 25 percent subsidy on setting up a paddy industry or rice mill, 70 percent subsidy on setting up a food processing industry and 70 percent subsidy for setting up an industrial unit in the field of solar energy. The rate of GST for small hoteliers in the state has been reduced to 5 percent. In addition, GST on 1500 products has been completely removed. At the same time, GST and VAT officials have been banned from taking decisions based on discretion.


Gupta further said that tax registration and stamp department officials like Registrars, Assistant Registrars and Stamp Commissioners will also not be able to issue notices on the basis of discretion. This has been completely banned so that no person is harmed at anytime. He said that there was a long-standing demand to build bridge in Prayagraj and nearby Mirzapur district which has been accepted by the Chief Minister and the people of these districts will soon get the construction news.

For more information regarding the subsidy, you can either contact the Uttar Pradesh Department of Horticulture and Food Processing office or visit its official website.
