Union Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday said that all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) canteens will now sell only indigenous products. “This will be applicable to all CAPF canteens across the country from 01 June 2020,” Shah said in a tweet.
The move will lead to 50 lakh families, of about 10 lakh CAPF personnel, using indigenously products, Shah said.
The home minister’s announcement came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation, urged citizens to make the country self-reliant and use locally-made products.
Shah also urged the people to follow PM Modi’s appeal and make maximum use of the products made in the country.
“Encourage others to do the same. If every Indian take a pledge to use products made in India (Swadeshi), the democracy of the country can become self-sufficient in five years,” Shah tweeted.
