Development of market yards & ginning factories under TMC

May '07
No separate year-wise targets have been fixed for the development of market yards and modernization of G&P factories.

However, the original target for Development of Market Yards under Technology Mission on Cotton (TMC) (Mini Mission –III) launched in February 2000 was 111. Against this target, 108 Market Yards have been completed by the end of the March 2007 (i.e. Xth Plan).

The achievement is thus 97.29% of the original target. Similarly, the original target for Modernization of Ginning & Pressing Factories under Mini Mission –IV was 500, against which development of 544 market yards have been completed till the end of the Xth Five Year Plan. Thus achievement under Mini Mission – IV is 107% against the original target.

Taking into account the fast pace of the achievements of the target and satisfactory progress of Mini Mission –III & IV the Government of India in June, 2005 thought it prudent to revise and thereby increase the original targets to Development of 250 Market Yards and Modernization of 1000 G& P factories.

At the time of revising the target under TMC (MM- III & IV), it was well envisaged that this revised target would spill over to the XIth Plan period. Thus it will not be correct to say that the achievements in comparison to the targets have not been satisfactory.

As against the revised target, 226 Market Yards have been sanctioned and 907 G& P factories have been sanctioned. The achievement of the revised targets in terms of number of project sanctioned is 90.40% in case of MM-III and 90.70% in case of MM-VI. As modernization of market yard and G& P factories have a long gestation period, it is expected that the project will be completed in the first two years of the XIth Plan period.
