Gujarat Chief Minister Smt. Anandiben Patel inaugurated a huge 42,000 Sq. Ft. Auction Shed and Ripening Chamber having capacity of 10 Metric Tonne at APMC yard in Gondal town in Rajkot district today.

On this occasion, Smt. Patel praised Chairman and trustees of APMC for constructing such a huge pillar-less Auction Shed, which she said will protect farmers and their agro-products from rain and scorching heat.

Talking about the Ripening Chamber, which was also inaugurated by the CM, she described the benefits of organically ripened fruits and added that artificially ripened fruits that we eat are loaded with chemicals and are very harmful.

She expressed her readiness to provide help from the state government to build such chambers in other parts.
