Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir Government on Saturday disbanded J&K Sheep & Sheep Products Development Board.

An Animal, Sheep Husbandry & Fisheries Department proposal to wind up the Board was approved by the Administrative Council which met here under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha.

The decision was taken considering that there has been no significant on-ground impact on production and marketing of wool and wool based product.

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.
