Ministry of Tribal Affairs announces inclusion of 23 additional MFP items in MSP

The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has included 23 Minor Forest Produce (MFP) items under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme titled "Mechanism for Marketing of Minor Forest Produce (MFP) through Minimum Support Price (MSP) and development of value chain of MFP".

Key Points:

  • The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has also set forth the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of the 23 items.
  • The increase in the coverage of items from 50 to 73 has been announced amidst the challenging circumstances present in the country due to COVID-19 Pandemic to provide the much-needed support to the tribal MFP gatherers.
  • The increase of the MSP covering the different items of Minor Forest Produce ranges from 16 percent to 66 percent (in cases like Giloy, an increase of 190 percent has been done).
  • The increase in MSP will provide support, relief and much-needed momentum to the procurement of Minor Tribal Produce throughout the country.
  • Flexibility has been provided to States by the Ministry to fix up to 10% higher or lower MSP than declared by the centre. 
  • TRIFED is the nodal agency for the implementation of the scheme.
