Jammu: The Administrative Council (AC) today approved the proposal of the Animal, Sheep Husbandry & Fisheries Department to wind up the J&K Sheep & 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.

The Administrative Council further 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.
