Himachal Pradesh growers happy as storage rates for Shimla and Kinnaur apples is reduced

The storage rates for Shimla and Kinnaur apples have been reduced by Rs 0.40 per kg per month in the Controlled Atmosphere (CA) stores operated by the Himachal Pradesh Marketing Corporation. The HPMC is a state government undertaking. Revenue and Horticulture Minister Jagat Singh Negi announced this positive development during a press conference on Sunday.

Previously, horticulturists were charged Rs 2 per kg per month for storing their apples in HPMC’s CA stores, while traders had to pay Rs 2.10. However, in a move to support the horticulture industry, the government has now reduced the storage rates, with horticulturists paying Rs 1.60 and traders paying Rs 1.90 per kg per month. This reduction will directly benefit thousands of gardeners across the state.
