The West Bengal Government has taken up a project to set up three biotechnology hubs across the state to bring in more biotechnology innovations to the State. The three proposed biotechnology hubs will come in Bardhaman, Kalimpong and Medinipur districts. They will help in the coordination of various departments with the Biotechnology Department in a better way. The purpose of the projects was to promote overall development of both traditional and modern biotechnology in the State including various livelihood development programmes. It will also strengthen biotechnology-based aspects to develop the economy of the state from grass-root level.
The Biotechnology Department of the State has already taken up an elaborate scheme to not only tie up with other departments like Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food Processing to increase the productivity and quality of various products but to also provide germ-free food to the common people. The Biotechnology department has already acquired land from the Burdwan Development Authorities and the construction work will begin soon. The other two hubs will be constructed later on.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the state which has taken up a project to set up three biotechnology hubs?
2. Name three districts in which the WB government is going to come up with biotechnology hubs?
