The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) has invited applications for setting up of mega food parks (MFPs) under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sampada Yojna in the states and Union Territories (UTs) that do not have any mega food park allocations so far. 

MoFPI has ordered promoters from all the uncovered states like Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya, Sikkim and Tamil Nadu and UTs to submit their proposals by February 9, 2019. In this regard, the ministry issued a notice seeking applications from the investors.

The notice stated, "MoFPI is inviting proposals/expressions of interest (EoIs) from the potential promoters for setting up MFPs in the country. Proposals received for setting up mega food parks in the uncovered states and all the UTs against the vacancies available for the project will be considered."

"If no proposal is received from these uncovered states, proposals for states having mega parks, including Bihar, Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Jammu and Kashmir, Chhattisgarh, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura, will be considered," the ministry further added.
