Inputs Divisions Srinagar/Jammu.
These Divisions of the Corporation are dealing in procurement & sale of various Agriculture Inputs like Fertilizers, Seeds & Pesticides to the farmers of J&K State. Prior to taking up of distribution of fertilizer in mid 1996, sale of pesticides and seed was the main trading activity of this Division. With the with-drawl of subsidy on pesticides by the Stale Govt., the Agriculture Dept. stopped bulk purchases and thus the trading of pesticides by the Corporation was reduced to a negligible level. During 1996, Corporation was authorized to take up fertilizer trading in addition to JAKFED. This activity helped the Corporation to increase its turnover from Rs. 308.00 lacs in the year 1994-95 to Rs. 5273.63 laes in the year 2000-01.
Fertilizer trading has remained the main profit generating activity of the Corporation and around 85% of the Corporation's revenue would come from this activity.

Procurement & Sales Divisions Srinagar/Jammu
The Divisions are engaged in procurement and supply of Agriculture Equipments and Machinery to farmers and various Govt. Departments. The Corporation is an authorized distributor for many reputed Companies like Kirlosker Brothers, H.M.T. tractors, V.S.T. Power Tillers, JK Tyres, Exide Batteries, Punjab Tractors, Harvel Irrigation Systems for Drip and Sprinkle irrigation etc. This activity of the Corporation has got good potential for further growth as various Govt. Deptts. are making huge purchases of the items for which Corporation has dealership tie-ups.
The Corporation at its level has been making efforts to increase the turnover of this activity.
The year-wise performance of the Division for last 13 years reveals that turnover of these activities increased from Rs. 412.47 lacs in the year 1995-96 to Rs. 1121.68 lacs in 2007-08.

Cattle Feed Manufacturing Plant at Bari Brahmana.
The Cattle Peed Plant was established in the year 1989-90 with a production capacity of 50 Mis. of palleted feed per day. The Plant manufactures ISI mark Cattle Feed and quality is ensured by in-housc laboratory.

The physical and financial performance of the Division for last 13 years is placed at annexure 'C Page (15). The turnover of the plant has been increasing year after year i.e. from Rs. 130.03 lacs in the year 1995-96 to Rs. 499.00 lacs in the year 2007-08. The plant showed profit of Rs. 5.41 lacs in the year 2006-07 and Rs. 7.92 lacs in 2007-08. There is scope to increase the turnover / sales further but since the plant has become very old, therefore docs not give capacity production. Its capacity utilization would need some investment to renovate the plant and machinery.


Alternatively there is market potential to add one more modern plant of 50MT-a-day capacity, as sufficient land is available. This addition of new plant will increase production and profitability of the Unit.

Cold Storage Plant at Delhi.
The Corporation has a Cold Storage Plant at Delhi which was commissioned in the year 1975 with a storage capacity of 2200 Mis. The statement at Annexure 'D' Page (16) indicates the position of profit and loss of the unit over a period 13 years. The plant is more than 30 years old, its building and machinery has become very old and require investment on its repair/renovation. Infact, at some later stage the whole plant needs to be re-build. At the present capacity level, the unit is facing stagnation in the revenue. The space at the plant remain occupied upto 80%. The revenue is not expected to increase further as due to competition, as the per unit storage charges have remained the same over the years. The ever-increasing electricity cost is eating into its profits. The revenue of (lie unit can he increased immediately provided the machinery of the Plant whieh is now old and obsolete is replaced and the cold storage chambers are divided into smaller chambers and new additional store is installed.

Processing & Canning Unit Khonmoh.
The Corporation has a fruit and vegetable processing/canning unit at Khonmoh which was established during the year 1982-83 with a capital investment of Rs. 35.00 lacs. The plant has a capacity to process 500 Mts. of fruit and vegetables per year and incorporates a Honey processing unit for processing 36 Mt. (72,000 bottles) of Honey per annum.
The profit and loss position of (lie unit over the past 13 years is indicated in annexure 'E' Page ( 17 ).
The unit has been showing huge losses because of following reasons.

Inadequate market network.

Inadequate machinery and equipment in the plant.

Lack of working capital.

Fabrication & Machinery Service Divisions Kashmir /Jammu .

This unit is erstwhile Tractor Hiring Division which was closed in 1982, but the staff which could not be adjusted in Govt, departments was posted to run this division in an attempt to utilize their services. This Division was engaged in fabrication of various items like green houses, steel doors shutters, bins etc. Also a repair workshop was there to carry out repair of tractors and other vehicles. The unit was non-functional. This division did not have any scope for revival and hence was covered under Golden Handshake Scheme and 89 employees were given Golden Handshake.

Petrol and Diesel Filling Station :-
The Corporation has got a Petrol and Diesel filling station at Bari Brahamana. The Pump is being managed profitably. Corporation has got another Pump at Lalmandi which at present is non-functional.
This Pump could be shifted to a potentially viable location provided Government allots land to the Corporation at some prime location.

Marketing Division :-
During the year 1995-96, the Corporation made efforts to gain-fully utilize the services of the surplus staff. The experiment of the corporation could not yield positive results and the Division was wound up in 2002-03 and the staff of about 5A employees was adjusted in other working Divisions.

The accumulated losses of .the Corporation are to the extent of Rs. 4015.44 lacs as on 31-03-2008.
