5 yr. plan to develop tea industry Featured

A three-pronged plan to develop the tea industry within five years from 2019 has been proposed, says plantation industries ministry secretary J.A. Ranjith.

Views and suggestions of tea factory owners, small holders, exporters and other stakeholders will be obtained for this plan, he says.

The plan will focus on tea planting, replanting and mechanization.

The ministry expects to double the tea production from the available land under this plan.
