As per DAE around 75,000 jute farmers will be roped under this program and they would be given 7,500 ribbon retting machines, required basic training, financial assistance, equipments and technological support.

Further explaining the process, a DAE official said that, firstly raw ribbon will be separated from the jute sticks with the help of ribbon retting machines. Then the separated ribbon will be soaked in water in polythene to rot it properly.

However, under this process, water bodies such as canal, pond and ditches and seasonal rains is not of importance, to rot the ribbon and to separate it from sticks. Decomposed water and little urea fertilizer can be made use of in the hole to rot the ribbon as fast as possible.
