The Project was completed under Article 275 (I) in the month of Sept./2010.

Now the “KANCH” FRUIT JUICE is in the local market. The management has recently introduced a new product of MANGO Beverage with a new GETUP of all juice bottles including Pine apples and Oranges juice .It is purely natural.
This is an old unit of the Corporation . The “KANCH” brand Mustard Oil was famous once upon a time due to its purity and quality but could not last in the long run due to many reasons . The Unit could not run due to shortage of working capital etc. for last several years because it required heavy working capital to start the business. The machineries are in running condition.
As per the decision of the Board, the unit was run through “Public Private Participation” (PPP) with 65:35 ratio ON EXPERIMENTAL BASIS. But the party could not run the business properly. After a threadbare discussion with the Party, the Management has decided to take over the business from the Party. To run the M. Oil Mill, a heavy working capital is required for procurement of M.Seeds from local growers and packing materials including Bottling machines etc.
The Corporation have cultivated more than 500 bighas (67 Hectors) of Land Area at Manja, Dilajee, Gandhipur,Hawaipur and Diyungbra (Dima Hasao) .

This LONG TERM & DIVERSIFIED scheme/plantation have been taken up by the Corporation from the last 4 years at Manja , Dilajee and now at Gandhipur(Bokajan). This is economically a viable scheme and having assured market. Fixed revenue will be earned from this plantation after 6-7 years. Now more than 190 bighas have been under Rubber plants in the allotted land and are growing good.
The unit is one of the oldest factory of the Corporation situated at Boro-Haflong, near Famous JATINGA Dima Hasao (NC Hills). The unit was also defunct due to crisis of fund during the period from 2000 to 2012 .In the meantime, the unit was revived partly through RSVY by the Horticulture Deptt.of N.C.Hills with a limited working capital in the year 2008. But due to shortage of working capital and pending of arrear salary etc. the unit could not be run properly. Now the unit has started production from the month of July,2015 in a limited ways.
