- The National Bamboo Mission recently launched the Management Information System to strengthen the domestic Agarbatti industry.
About the MIS Module
- It will collect data about Agarbatti production, availability of raw materials, location of stick making units, production capacity, functioning of units, etc.
- The system will act as an intermediary between the production units and the Agarbatti industry (as a whole). This will help to fill the information gaps.
National Bamboo Mission
- The National Bamboo Mission was launched in 2018-19.
- It is currently implemented in twenty one states.
- To boost the domestic Agarbatti units, the import duty on round sticks were increased to 25%. Also, the raw batti imports were moved from free to restricted category.
