            For timely completion of the projects, Ministry has suitably modified the guidelines of the Schemes from time to time in consultation with the stakeholders, involved State Governments in the process of selection of the projects, making available affordable credit through NABARD, classified food processing as agriculture activity for primary sector lending and made available various fiscal concessions. The State Governments are also impressed upon to put in place an effective single window clearance system for one-point clearance of all the approvals. The regular project-wise monitoring is undertaken at various levels in the Ministry to expedite implementation.
