Krishi Vigyan Kendra coming up in Birbhum

A Krishi Vigyan Kendra will come up at Murarai in Birbhum district soon. State fisheries minister announced the same after visiting the site of the upcoming centre. He was accompanied by the vice-chancellor of the West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences, and officials of the land department.

The centre will be beneficial for the local people and will boost the local economy, say experts. The minister said, “25 acres of land is required for setting up this centre. Birbhum is primarily an agricultural district. A centre like this was much needed.”

The State Government has to allot land for setting up the centre. Indian Council of Agricultural Research will bear the rest of the cost.
