The mission is providing assistance to boost commercial horticulture
Under the Indian government’s Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH), subsidy is being provided for setting up tissue culture units. Subsidy is given to the eligible beneficiaries for setting up tissue culture units under MIDH’s sub-schemes National Horticulture Mission (NHM) and Horticulture Mission for Northeast and Himalayan States (HMNEH) to boost commercial horticulture.
For private beneficiaries, credit-linked back-ended subsidy of 40% is provided for a tissue culture unit of Rs 2.5 crore, which is Rs 1 crore. For the public sector, MIDH offers 100% financial assistance.
According to the mission guidelines, each tissue culture unit will have to produce a minimum of 25 lakh plants per year of mandated crops, duly hardened for which protocols are available for commercial use.
Details about the eligibility and the cost norms for establishing tissue culture units are given on the MIDH website https://midh.gov.in/.
