Brahmapur, May 6:
Three southern Odisha districts will have 13 more warehouses to store agricultural produce soon.
Official sources today said the new godowns -each with a capacity of 2,500 metric tons- will come up in Ganjam, Gajapati and Kandhamal districts and will be set up on a public-private partnership (PPP) mode.
Addressing a workshop organised here by the International Finance Corporation, the Ganjam district civil supplies officer SK Mohanty said construction of these godowns will help ease the problem of storing paddy in these districts.
While the godowns will come up at Bhanjanagar, Jagannathprasad, Khallikote, Rangeilunda, Patrapur and Sorada in Ganjam district and Tikabali, Tumudibandh and Daringbadi in Kandhamal district.
Besides, smaller godowns, with 500 metric tonne storage capacity, will be established in each block of Ganjam district, to store PDS commodities, sources said.
