For the first time a train full of potatoes operated between Deesa and Chennai

Deesa: For the first time in the history of potato city Deesa in North Gujarat, a train was specially operated to carry potato to Chennai. Around 40,000 katta potatoes were sent to Tamil Nadu in order to save money on truck transportation which is costlier. If the new move proves successful for farmers and traders, more trains are to be operated on this route. There’s great demand of potatoes of North Gujarat in Southern Indian State Tamil Nadu. The State government offers Rs 1150 subsidy per quintal for potato transportation which will make the move profitable for traders and beneficial for farmers, said Hareshbhai Saini of Shivshankar cold storage.
