Date & Time: 2019-05-13 05:13:04

To boost production of local honey variants within a specific geographical region in the country, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) is planning to set up regional honeybee breeding centres. . Currently, the honey collection takes place at select centres, identified by KVIC and National Bee Board (NBB), along with the state-level breeding centres in select states.    Regional centres are likely to come up in Kashmir, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Dahanu and Kanyakumari. Names of some more centres have been proposed, but are yet to be finalised
