  • On July 8, the Union Cabinet approved a new Central Sector Scheme — Agriculture Infrastructure Fund (AIF).
  • The Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) provides a grant of up to ₹10 crore under the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sampada Yojana (PMKSY).
  • It will be extremely useful if all the other capital subsidy and interest subvention schemes of the Union and State Governments are also captured on the portal created for the AIF.
