Our Bureau, New Delhi
Under its 12th Plan Central Sector Scheme, titled Agriculture Export Promotion Plan Scheme of APEDA, the Agricultural and Processed Food Export Development Authority (APEDA), an autonomous organisation under the Department of Commerce,has been providing assistance to the exporters of the agricultural and processed food products under the various components of the scheme, namely infrastructure development, market promotion, quality development and transport assistance.

Moreover, the exporters of the agricultural and processed food products have also been getting assistance under various export promotion schemes of the department of commerce, namely the Market Access Initiative (MAI) Scheme, the Market Development Assistance (MDA) Scheme and the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS).

The export promotion schemes are primarily aimed at assisting exporters of agricultural and processed food products and creating export-oriented infrastructure for such products.Benefits derived by the small and marginal farmers from such schemes would be indirect in nature and hence cannot be assessed.

Exporters of agricultural and processed food products from the state of Rajasthan are eligible for availing assistance under the various export promotion schemes of the commerce department and APEDA. The latter has provided financial assistance to various agencies of the government of Rajasthan for setting up common infrastructure facilities for exports as under:
