Jammu, Feb 13 (PTI) The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Saturday approved the proposal of the Animal, Sheep Husbandry and Fisheries department to wind up the J&K Sheep and Sheep Products Development Board.

'The decision was taken considering that there has been no significant on-ground impact on production and marketing of wool and wool-based products,' an official release said.

It said the administrative council headed by Lt Governor Manoj Sinha directed the Industries and Commerce Department to prepare a scheme tailored to the marketing needs of wool producers and provide government support towards ensuring a remunerative price for woollen products. PTI TAS MR MR
