(i) Grameen Bhandaran Yojna (GBY), also known as Rural Godown Scheme; and (ii) Scheme for Strengthening/Development of Agricultural Marketing Infrastructure, Grading & Standardization (AMIGS) have been subsumed into one scheme known as Agricultural Marketing Infrastructure (AMI) on 01.04.2014]. Under the scheme, capital investment subsidy @ 25% of the capital cost for general category beneficiary and @33.33% for special category beneficiary is provided for construction/creation of scientific godowns and other marketing infrastructure in the country.
